British Silent Film Festival

'An Appreciation of Film': The Leicester Film Society in 1930s TBC

Sun 15 Sep, 12.30pm

The Leicester Film Society was founded in 1931 to promote wider interest in the cultural possibilities of the cinema and to screen ‘artistic films’ from Britain and the continent that the commercial cinemas in the city were not screening. They were particularly interested in the silent films coming out of Ufa in Germany.

Using the Society’s archive, this illustrated presentation will examine the range of films screened during this period including Cinderella (Berger, 1924), The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari (1919), Westfront 1918 (1918) and Mutter Krausen (1930).
