Yorkshire Silent Film Ltd Silent film with live music all over Yorkshire

From the timeless slapstick of Buster Keaton to the magnificent excesses of D W Griffiths' historical epics, from the first thrillers of the young Alfred Hitchcock to the mysterious splendour of great stars like Gloria Swanson and Pola Negri, silent film is a treasure trove of extraordinary experiences for audiences today. Yorkshire Silent Film exists to bring these experiences to audiences across Yorkshire and the North.

Without music a silent film is incomplete and live music in particular can bring a silent to vivid life - that's why we work only with live music. We take a particular interest in the craft of the improvising silent film pianist, though we also work with other instrumentalists, ensembles and orchestras.
