Sound of Silent Film 2015

SOSF_home_pageSound of Silent Film is turning 10! We’re celebrating with an all new crop of modern silent films from directors around the world. Each film has been scored by one of our composer members and the scores will be performed live in the beautiful Music Box Theater.

The festival features the World Premiere screening of Iranian filmmaker Mohammad Zare’s Junk Girl, inspired by a Tim Burton poem of the same name.  Due to strictures on the film industry from the Iranian government this film has never been publicly screened and has never had a musical score. Rob Steel‘s new score is the first time music has been put to the film and it will be performed live!

We’re also screening six other brilliant modern silent films from around the world, all with music performed live. Don’t miss this one-night only performance!
