The Hippodrome Silent Film Festival took place from Wednesday 22 - Sunday 26 March 2023!
Our 2023 festival screened 35 silent shorts and feature films, which were presented and accompanied by over 31 international speakers and musicians. Highlights included the World Premiere of a new special commission from inclusive ensemble Sonic Bothy for the Festival’s opening night film The Blue Bird (1918); Ukrainian musicians Roksana Smirnova and Misha Kalinin with their score to experimental documentary In Spring (1929); award-winning American author, historian, filmmaker Mindy Johnson presenting rare clips and images from early woman animator Bessie Mae Kelley; and talented young musicians from the Falkirk district accompanying films from the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive in Hippfest’s annual New Found Sound event.
