San Francisco Silent Film Festival - July 12-15 2012


Mark your calendars!  The San Francisco Silent Film Festival will be annoucing the schedule of films for the 2012 festival on May 10, 2012.  Rest assured, I will be posting about it.

We already know, because the SFSFF told us, that WINGS, the 1927 Academy Award winning Best Picture will be the opening night film.  WINGS has recently been restored to great ballyhoo (well deserved). 

We'll also be seeing a 1922 epic from Germany, The Loves of the Pharaoh.  The restoration on this looks gorgeous! 




I've heard some rumors about other possible films and am very excited if those rumors are true!

Napoleon was such a thrill! It was absolutely worth the cross-country trek. I am going to try my best to make the Festival this year. Cheers to Mr Valentino on his birthday!
