My summer of silents
I'll be playing for MoMA's annual film preservation fest in June, a silent each month at the Cinema Arts Center on Long Island, a program of comedy shorts at Mamaroneck's annual street fair (in the town's 1926 movie theater), a pair of films at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's series of recent [theatrical] releases by Kino, a series of 1912-14 films at MoMA in conjunction with their gallery show of Danish film posters from those years, the annual 4-day Slapsticon in Arlington VA, and a show at the Museum of the City of New York of films from the Reel Baseball DVD set.
Check out my performance schedule on my website for details on dates, times and films.
I'm trying best I can to preview the films I have to play for; some are available on video, some are available on screeners from the venue (MoMA), and then Slapsticon is going to be almost all "sight-reading".
Check back for reports, photos and audio clips. See you at the silents!
