Sound of Silent Film Festival Chicago

Sunday, April 19 7:00 pm
 

ACM's popular Sound of Silent Film Festival - now in its ninth year! -  features newly composed scores performed live to modern silent films.  This year's festival features short dramas, comedies and experimental films from exciting young filmmakers around the world, all with new scores by our composer members.

We're thrilled to be moving the festival this year to the historic Music Box Theater on Southport!  The Music Box is one of Chicago's premiere theaters for arthouse cinema. It's gorgeous interior, state of the art faciilites and sterling reputation make it the perfect fit for the Sound of Silent Film Festival.
