Silent Toronto at the Pordenone Silent Film Festival

I arrived in Pordenone, Italy last night for the giornate del cinema muto, the world’s most important silent film festival, where I’ll be part of this year’s collegium. I’ll be tweeting from @SilentToronto about all the goings-on!

Festival highlights include a lengthy programme examining the pre-Hollywood work of Michael Curtiz, the treasures of the west (featuring Canuck-centric flicks like Mantrap starring Clara Bow and William Beaudine’s The Canadian), several Disney Laugh-O-Gram cartoons, the recently-discovered The White Shadow, Chaplin’s The Circus and plenty of Sjostrom.
