Le Giornate del cinema muto (Pordenone Silent Film Festival) is the world’s leading silent film festival. It is held annually in October in Pordenone, northern Italy. Dozens of silent films, a majority of which are not otherwise available, are shown in beautiful restorations with exquisite live musical accompaniment.
This year, due to to the pandemic, many of us will not be able to enjoy a jam-packed schedule of silent gems with hundreds of fellow enthusiasts in the soft reddish glow of the Teatro Verdi nor a glass of wine on the piazza following the final screening of the day. To accommodate those who cannot attend in person, the festival will also take place online, which will allow you to get to know the Giornate from afar, hoping that next year we can all travel to Pordenone in person!
During the week of 2-9 October the festival will be online with one film program per weekday running no more than two hours, and two film programs at the weekends, all accessible in live streaming, and available for 24 hours after the first screening, thus allowing viewers to watch from any time zone. The online program features film-makers and actors who were among the finest exponents of the first three decades of cinema.
This week-long program grants to access to forty films and is available at the cost of three movie tickets: You can get a basic virtual festival pass for only €29.90.
Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to fall in love with silent cinema!
