Over 15 years the British Silent Film Festival has afforded scholars, archivists and enthusiasts the opportunity to re-assess film-making in Britain between 1895 and 1930.
By bringing forgotten films out of the archive and encouraging scholarly activity that can place those films in appropriate production and reception contexts, the Festival has been the driving force behind a complete re-appraisal of what was previously an almost unknown cinema.
This one-day symposium is intended to act as a punctuation mark – an opportunity to consider the achievements and the key debates brought to light by the Festival and to discuss the new directions that future research may take.
