TORONTO SILENT FILM FESTIVAL
RETURNS THIS NOVEMBER 6/7, DECEMBER 4/5, JANUARY 8/9

The Festival returns to the big screen at the Revue Cinema. As with everything since March 2020, there's going to be some changes to the way we're going to finally present the long postponed 2020 festival. There will be 3 mini festivals over 3 different weekends in 3 different months.  If you already hold a pass/ticket from 2020 or are looking for tickets, please read the Festival Film Page, Ticket Info Page and acquaint yourself with the Health and Safety Protocols
For everyone's comfort, we've decided to LIMIT THE NUMBER of seats available for the November 6/7 screenings to maximum 120. We'll re-evaluate for each upcoming mini-fest after November.   

The 2022 Festival is scheduled for early April. At this point, the hope is for a return to our regular Friday to Monday festival format. The programming team is already working on putting together another line-up of archival restorations, rarities and classic silent films.
