Metro Manila · 7th International Silent Film Festival
The International Silent Film Festival features six movies from six different countries, accompanied by outstanding Filipino live bands and musicians. It takes place from August 23 to 25, 2013, in Shang Cineplex.
The festival is a cooperation of the German Goethe-Institut, the Japan Foundation, the Embassy of Italy, the Phil-Italian Association, the Embassy of the United States, the Instituto Cervantes, and the Film Development Council of the Philippines. The works - from comedy to drama and horror - stem from the early years of film-making, apart from the Philippine one, which is an experimental new movie about an obscure silent film. The accompanying bands are at home in many genres, including rock, blues, and jazz, among others.
