Innis Town Hall movie screen to go silent

Silent film aficionados, rejoice once again. The Toronto Silent Film Festival is back with a line-up against with we can measure all future and former silent film festival line-ups. I say this purely on the inclusion of Victor Sjöström's 1928 Lilian gish vehicle, The Wind (Thursday, April 3 at 8PM; Innis Town Hall), arguably the greatest of all silent films, influencing filmmakers up to and including Béla Tarr.

Not to ignore other legends in this year's festival: Murnau, Chaplin, Linder, and Von Sternberg. Full schedule available here.

The Toronto Silent Film Festival runs April 3rd to 8th at Innis Town Hall.
