The 1913 Show at the BFI


For those interested in the transition from early silent cinema to Hollywood feature films, this should be a fascinating event.

The year 1913 was so significant in film history that the Pordenone Silent Film festival devoted an entire festival to it in 1993.

This selection will focus on some of the greatest short films of the era – including the perfect short, Lois Webers’ Suspense, as well as news, comedy, crime and adventure.

Introduced by Bryony Dixon curator of silent film, BFI National Archive and with live piano accompaniment.

As usual, we will meet by the BFI library 15m before the film is due to start with a drink afterwards.

    "DOH!"

    so that is what that white spot in the event calendar was all about. I could not find anything listed so I planned my return journey for that day.
    The return journey, yes. I'll be in London from the 28th november for Napoleon and some other things to be determined.
