1st International Silent Film Festival


While I don’t expect it’s going to affect many Bioscope readers, I’ve just come across notice of the 1st International Silent Film Festival, currently taking place in Manila, Philippines. Organised by the Goethe-Institut Manila, Instituto Cervantes and the Japan Foundation, the festival is taking place 4-13 September, and features silent films from Germany, Japan and Spain. There are just three films showing, a little disappointingly for such a grandly-named venture: Lotte Reiniger’s The Adventures of Prince Achmed/Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed (1926); the Spanish silent The Sixth Sense/El sexto sentido (1929), directed by Nemesio Sobrevilla; and the Japanese A Monster Serpent/Orochi (1925), directed by Buntaro Futagawa. There are further details on the films here.
