It’s been a crazy year, so a Krazy Kat T-shirt is what is needed to laugh a little at this year.
Super soft black T with white screening print made from soy based ink, locally made by a small, quality business. Available in Unisex sized Small/Medium/Large/X-Large  
Its limited edition, so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.

“Hurry Lulu -- we're going to the movies! ”Tote Bag $15 (including tax) + shipping

In the meantime here’s a great way to get your silent  film fix in.
Sundays at 3pm Live from New York City it’s the Silent Comedy Watch Party with Ben Model and Steve Massa.  
Every week, Ben and Steve present rare comedy shorts  with live accompaniment from Ben and introductions from Steve. It’s a lot of fun  and it’s the closest we’re going to get to live silent cinema events. How’s that  for social distancing!

Become a Friend Of The Festival.
As a not for profit, volunteer run Festival, we rely heavily on ticket sales for the majority of our budget.
No matter what the amount of your donation, it is important to us and 100% will go back into programming.
All donations will be matched up to $1000.00 due to a matching support by an anoymous Friend Of The Festival. All donators will be listed on our website by name (or if you wish to stay anonymous, just ask).
At present, we are not a registered charity so we cannot issue a charitable tax receipt.

The 2020 Festival Cocktail
To celebrate the new Roaring Twenties, this cocktail was developed (and  extensively taste tested) just for the festival by TCM with a Twist  @TCMwithaTwist aka Lee Aundra Keany
A cocktail  that will whisk you back to the age of Fitzgerald, Clara Bow and hideaway Parisian bars where you suddenly run into Louise Brooks.
Sip with intentions toward beautiful women and dangerous men.
