Oh my heavens, readers. It has been way too long since my last post. I feel like I’m faulting at my post as a blogger–but I’ve been so extremely busy lately that it has been hard to find time to sit down and write a lengthy post.
A new announcement, however, brings me back. The San Francisco Silent Film Festival, for which I have the highest respect, has announced Silent Autumn, a day-long mini film festival to take place in September at the Castro Theater in San Francisco.
In previous years, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival has hosted a similar event called Silent Winter, but the festival is experimenting with scheduling this year. The 2014 main festival took place in May instead of July, and it seems that Silent Autumn has taken the place of Silent Winter. The lineup is fantastic. Here is what we have to look forward to when Silent Autumn takes place on September 20, 2014:
ANOTHER FINE MESS: Laurel and Hardy shorts (11:00 AM)
The Son of the Sheik (1:00 PM)
A Night at the Cinema in 1914 (3:30 PM), a celebration of the movies at the start of World War I
The General (7:00 PM)
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (9:00 PM)
As usual, Backlots will be covering all the excitement. If you will be in the area and would like more information about the lineup, visit the San Francisco Silent Film Festival site here. It promises to be a very fun day!
I’m off to the East Coast on Tuesday, but I promise to make a post before I go. Lots of great things are happening in the classic film world right now, and Backlots will be right there on the pulse of it!
See you soon!
