Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema 2015
Wednesday 18 March - Sunday 22 March
The 5th Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema is now well under way. We would love to hear your feedback, so if you've attended the Festival and could spare just a few minutes to complete a questionnaire we would greatly appreciate it: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HippFest15.
All entries will go in to a prize draw to win a FESTIVAL GOODY BAG (including exclusive Kelpies merchandise worth over £30 and signed goodies from Festival performers).
We've pulled out all the stops for this, our Fifth Festival, packing the programme with rare and classic films from the world's archives and populating the Hippodrome and new venues across the town with a brilliant line-up of silent film accompanists from right across the musical spectrum. In a first for our expanding programme, we also have a glamorous photographic portrait exhibition, showing silent stars visiting Scotland.

HippFest is now known far and wide for bringing together inspiring people and films in extraordinary venues, making for an experience much greater than the sum of its parts. HippFest number 5 will prove this yet again and we hope you will join us for a taste of the magic.
