The Hippodrome Silent Film Festival (HippFest) is Scotland's first and only festival of silent film with live music. In 2021 the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival ran entirely online, reaching a new international community. Since then we have continued to develop the Festival’s output across a variety of digital platforms. If you can't make it in-person screening don’t worry - you can join us at selected events online. We are excited to extend our celebration of silent film with live music to our digital audiences across the world.
⭐ Catch up with Frances Marion: Hollywood's Favourite Storyteller, hosted by Pamela Hutchinson, which premiered on 26/1.
⭐ Tune in to the premiere of Jenny Gilbertson: 'A Real Illuminator', an illustrated conversation between Shona Main and Sarah Neely, on 27/2.
⭐ Tune in to the premiere of A New Look at Our Oldest Films, an illustrated presentation from BFI Curator Bryony Dixon, on 6/3.
Upcoming live-streams as part of HippFest 2024 include: The Rugged Island: A Shetland Lyric (1933), Sound Tracks: The Flying Scotsman and Britain's 'Part-Talkies', Stella Maris (1918), How to be a Flapper, and Just Around the Corner (1921).
Our HippFest at Home programme extends the reach of the Festival to new audiences in a variety of digital formats. Featuring our brand new podcast; Q&As with performers, archivists, and film historians; live-streamed feature presentations from venues across Scotland and beyond; innovative online events; and insightful, cross-cultural conversations about archive cinema - we hope that there's something for everyone.
