Denver Silent Film Festival

Denver Silent Film Festival: making noise

Feb 27, 2014

Silent film has a long history in Colorado. The popularity of Wild West themed films meant many were shot here in the late 1800s and early 1900s. But the advent of so-called talkies saw the once popular movie genre, with its characteristic piano accompaniment, silenced. Today the Denver Silent Film Festival aims to bright these films back into the spotlight.
