Sound of Silent Film Festival (Virtual Presentation)

ACM’s popular Sound of Silent Film Festival is a unique event featuring new short silent films in every conceivable genre screened with newly-composed musical scores performed live.

In addition to the live presentations, we’re thrilled to be able to present the festival virtually this year.

There are two completely different programs and they include five dramas, three comedies, two dramedies, an afro-surrealist film, a feel good movie, a docudrama, a thriller, a chess thriller and a masterpiece of stop motion animation.
