Thailand's first ever silent film festival takes place August 7-12, 2014 at the Lido cinema, and on August 13 at the Scala Theatre.

There will be 7 silent films shown, including three by Alfred Hitchcock (The Pleasure Garden, The Ring and The Lodger). Also scheduled are two screenings of Prix de beaute, starring Louise Brooks. One Asian film which will be screened, The Little Toys, was made in China.
