In conjunction with the Newcastle Museum, Australia’s Silent Film Festival is proud to present two sessions of restored classics in September.
The first session is a tribute to the inimitable Charlie Chaplin to celebrate his 100 years in film this year! Charlie’s genius captivated and enchanted audiences around the world within a very short period of time. That relationship has never ended. The whole world claims Charlie as its own: the qualities in his roles as director, actor and composer are timeless and universal.
On Saturday September 13 at 2pm, local musician, Greg Smith, shall accompany digital restorations of 4 of Charlie’s classic silent short comedies.
The first two on the program are the very first two films released to the public in 1914.
