Sound of Silent Film Festival 2017

Our twelfth annual Sound of Silent Film Festival returns to the gorgeous Music Box Theater with an all-new program!

Featuring newly composed scores performed live to modern silent films from around the world, this one night only event is a don’t miss.

“Of all the art forms, music takes the shortest route to the heart, and this is especially true of live music,” says acclaimed Canadian filmmaker, and SOSF 2011 alumnus Guy Maddin. “Something truly alchemical happens when film gets a live score.”
