Youth Silent Film Festival
This competition is produced by TOSA and challenges young filmmakers, 20 and under, to create a modern version of a silent film, see it on the big screen with live accompaniment, and win prizes! The top 3 winners are then automatically entered in the International competition in the U.S.A. Each filmmaker must choose one of the 10 pre-recorded musical themes upon which to base the film.
The Themes Are:
- Science Fiction
Listen to each theme in full by visiting www.makesilentfilm.com. Once a musical theme is chosen, you can set about making your silent film. If selected as a finalist, your film will be screened at The Capri with live musical accompaniment matching your chosen musical theme.
