Germany’s festival of silent film and music, StummFilmMusikTage, returns once more, but in a somewhat reduced state [nothing to worry about – see comments]. What was previously a three-day event at Erlangen is now three screenings over the one day, 29 January 2011:
Short Film Programme: Charlie Chaplin’s Adventures
The Rink (USA 1916)
Behind the Screen (USA 1916)
A Night in the Show (USA 1915)
Score and accompaniment: Yogo Pausch
Introduction: All Quiet on the Western Front
All Quiet on the Western Front (USA 1930, 145 min, Dir: Lewis Milestone)
Music: Manfred Knaak; Accompaniment: ensemble KONTRASTE conducted by Christian Schumann
The End of the World (Verdens Undergang) (DK 1916, 74 min, Dir: August Blom)
Music and accompaniment: Interzone Perceptible
As before, the festival will be held in the Markgrafentheater Erlangen, a baroque theatre built in 1719 and still in use. There’s more information as always on the festival site, and they are now open for bookings.
Thank you very much for announcing our festival!
No need to worry, though, about the festival length – each second year is organized as a one-day intermezzo.
Aha – I hadn’t realised. That’s good news, because I know how difficult it is to put on archive film festivals these days. I’ll add a note to the post.
