The Denver Silent Film Festival is dedicated to celebrate and increase appreciation of worldwide silent film, both through its annual festival and year-round programming. In the era of silent film, filmmakers first invented a new art form and then created a startling range of beloved masterpieces. Those films form the basis of cinema in the present, as well as being great art and entertainment on their own. Understanding and appreciating silent film is crucial to knowing our own society and culture.
