Yorkshire Silent Film Festival takes place each May in cinemas, theatres, arts centres, music and community venues around Yorkshire. The festival’s aim is to celebrate and foster the art of silent film with live musical accompaniment and to increase the opportunities for audiences in Yorkshire and the north to explore and enjoy the art form. The first edition of the festival in 2016 reached more than 2000 people, at least half of whom were experiencing silent film with live music for the first time.
