Hippodrome Silent Film Festival 2019

HippFest 2019 will run from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 March 2019.

The Hippodrome Silent Film Festival or HippFest, is Scotland's first and only Festival celebrating silent film and live music.

Its programme includes rare or unique silent screenings at the Hippodrome and other venues in Bo'ness, accompanied by live improvised music; new commissions, talks, workshops, and pop-up screenings.

First launched in 2011, the Festival has grown year-on-year and is now recognised as a key annual event in Scotland's cultural calendar.

The 3rd screening in the Hippodrome's 2018 Taste of Silents Season

This haunting silent thriller tells the tale of a mysterious young man (matinee idol Ivor Novello) who takes up residence at a London boardinghouse just as a killer known as the Avenger descends upon the city, preying on blonde women.

The film is animated by the palpable energy of a young stylist at play, decisively establishing the director's formal and thematic obsessions. With musical accompaniment by Stephen Horne.

Taste of Silents – a short season introducing the rich and immersive world of silent film with live music – for anyone who loves movies and music.

Other Taste of Silents coming soon: The General 29 September.
