1st Annual Silent Film Music Festival
September 16, 2017 @ 10 am - 8 pm
SILENT FILMS WITH LIVE PIANO MUSIC
September 16 10 AM – 8 PM at Bountiful Davis Art Center
$5/film or $20/day pass. Tickets available online ahead of time.
Bountiful Davis Art Center will host a Silent Film Music Festival Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm. Live pianists on two Steinway Grand pianos will accompany a new movie every 45 minutes throughout the day. Students of 16 area piano teachers will perform the score music. Ten different movies will be shown featuring Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. Creator and Coordinator Heather K. Smith said, “I envision that this festival will appeal to families as the films are all age-appropriate, funny, and relatively short. Not only will this festival offer a performance opportunity for students but will also be a way to historically preserve silent films.”
In keeping with watching film traditions, food and drink will be sold.
Tickets are purchased online or at the door: $5 per ticket for each show or $20 for day pass. Concessions available for purchase. All proceeds will help offset BDAC’s operational expenses to make it possible for music teachers to continue to rent the BDAC space at an affordable rate.
