Forssa festival

Rejoicing in the challenging (to the non-Nordic tongue) but magnificent name Mykkäelokuvafestivaalit, but having the more manageable alternative title of Forssa International Film Festival, this Finnish festival of silent films returns to Forssa 29-30 August. Now in its ninth year, the festival brings together an international programme of classics and rarities, usually with an element of local film as well.

There’s no background information on the site in English (as yet), but here’s the programme:

29 August
17:00 Nuori Luotsi
19:30 Speedy
22:00 The Lost World

30 August
12:00 The Kid Brother
14:30 Chaplin programme: The Floorwalker, The Cure, The Adventurer
17:00 Tarzan of the Apes
19:00 Girl Shy
22:00 Faust

The site includes a page on Harold Lloyd and, usefully, details of programmes from previous years.
