Bristol Silents

Silent film buffs will want to check out Bristol Silents, a film festival (and website) in Bristol, England. Their next series of films will be shown this September. Anyone who love the movies and lives in England may well want to check out their website for more information. I mention this organization because they are big fans of Louise Brooks! Bristol Silents was begun when local silent film enthusiasts Chris Daniels and Norman Taylor formed Bristol Silents in August 2000. Their goal was to promote and celebrate the art of the silent cinema. Initially, their series began with a short season of Louise Brooks films at Arnolfini in October 2000. Since then, they have presented many films. Among their Patrons are Kevin Brownlow, David Robinson, Diana Serra Carey, and Richard Attenborough.
