Thank you to everyone who attended our 3 recently completed mini fests, and for your understanding during the uncertainty of 2020, 2021 and yes, into 2022.
We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing everyone again.
We would also like to thank all our outstanding volunteers, the venues and their staff, and local businesses, archives and distributers and film restorers that we use to put the festival on. Without each of them, this festival would not exist.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION: BUSTER-A LIFE IN PICTURES
by Ryan Barnett and Matthew Tavares

"In this exciting new graphic novel biography, Ryan Barnett and Matthew Tavares weave together all of the triumphs, close calls, near misses, bumps, bruises and broken bones that defined Buster Keaton’s life and career. Barnett/Tavares present an entertaining portrait of a singular artist who influenced everyone from Salvador Dalí and Walt Disney to Wes Anderson and Jackie Chan."
  

Meet Ryan Barnett and have him autograph his new book at our next Fox Silent Event on November 26th 1pm.
