The 7th British Silent Cinema Festival
Goodbye to All That
British Silent Cinema and World War One
15-18 April 2004
Broadway, Nottingham, UK
The earth-shattering events of the 1914-18 War affected many aspects of culture and society. The 2004 British Silent Cinema Festival will focus on The Great War as a catalyst for change as seen through the British Film.
We invite presentations from anyone working on any aspect of British silent cinema and World War One as a watershed in history. Contributions should be illustrated and might include; life in Britain before and after the War, military and 'role of honour' films, the Home Front, popular music and film, the portrayal of returning soldiers, disability and medical films, the emancipation of women, issues of class, relationship with US and European film industries, war humour, anti-war films, advertising, animation and propaganda.
The British silent Cinema Festival is organised in conjunction with the British Film Institute/National Film and TV Archive and the Imperial War Museum.
Films will be supplied (at no charge to presenters) directly from the British Film Institute. For enquiries relating to film holdings at the bfi/NFTVA
