For four days, the Shang Cineplex will be home to oft-forgotten but enduring and invaluable silent films the world over, screened with accompanying home-grown musical talents.

Being the centennial of Charlie Chaplin’s birth, the Festival will open with Charlot’s City Lights. Aside from that classic, this year’s line-up includes: Chuji Tabi Nikki (Japan); Ma l’amor mio non muore!(Italy); Fritz Lang’s Der müde Tod (Germany); Verdun Visions d’Histoire (France); José Buchs’ Curro Vargas(Spain); and Ang Tigmo Pagpauli (Philippines).

These films will be accompanied by live musical performances from contemporary Filipino and international musicians such as Glass Cherry Breakers, Caliph8, KaaPin, the Manila Composer’s Lab with Germany’s Pierre Oser, and RadioActive Sago Project, among others.

The Silent Film Festival will be screened free-of-charge, in partnership with the Embassy of Spain, Filmoteca Española, the Embassy of Japan, Philippine-Italian Association, EUNIC Philippines, and the FDCP’s Film Cultural Exchange Program (FCEP).
