Denver Silent Film Festival 

The Denver Silent Film Festival was established in September of 2010. The Denver Silent Film Festival presents a broad spectrum of silent film by programming a lively and thought-provoking mix of educational and entertaining films. American and foreign classics, as well as lesser-known rare and restored films will be presented.

Denver Silent Film Festival Mission

The Denver Silent Film Festival is dedicated to celebrate and increase appreciation of worldwide silent film, both through its annual festival and year-round programming.

Denver Silent Film Festival Vision

In the era of silent film, filmmakers first invented a new art form and then created a startling range of beloved masterpieces. Those films form the basis of cinema in the present, as well as being great art and entertainment on their own. Understanding and appreciating silent film is crucial to knowing our own society and culture.
