Silent Film Festival

HippFest 2024 was our busiest yet, running from 20-24 March. Please fill in our Festival Feedback Surveys for both in-person and online events and save the date for next year: 19 - 23 March 2025!

The Hippodrome Silent Film Festival is Scotland’s first and only festival of silent film with live music, centred in and inspired by Scotland’s first and oldest cinema; featuring exceptional screenings, commissions, workshops, community events and touring. Renowned for its warm welcome and inclusive atmosphere, HippFest attracts a broad audience of cinema-goers, music lovers, and industry professionals, cultivating an international community with an adventurous appetite for extraordinary cinema.

'If we have a more fun night at the pictures we'll be surprised. One of the jewels in Scotland's film calendar. Anyone needing to be convinced of the multitudes of silent film need look no further.' The Skinny 


HippFest is delivered by its key funder Falkirk Council, supported by Film Hub Scotland part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and National Lottery funding from the BFI.
