Scotland's only silent film festival runs over five days with events, screenings and workshops, featuring live music and storytelling by national and international musicians and performers.
HippFest 2022 includes films and presentations rescheduled from 2020’s long-awaited line up, as well as new commissions and additions for 2022 - bringing the stars of the silent era back to Bo’ness once more. Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Buster Keaton, and Douglas Fairbanks, all return to the Hippodrome screen; plus, Lon Chaney, Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson and more.
The big names won’t be restricted to the screen at this year’s Festival, with live appearances from storyteller Marion Kenny and Scottish folk singer Mairi Campbell; musical accompaniment from The Dodge Brothers with Mark Kermode; and the much-anticipated live narration from actor Paul McGann.
