Silent London podcast: Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema 2014

I’ve just returned from the Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema in Bo’ness, Falkirk. It’s a fantastic event – I really enjoyed myself and only wish I could stay longer. To give you a flavour of the weekend, if you missed out this time, here’s a mini-podcast and a selection of social media updates too. Surely there is no cooler hashtag for a #silentfilm event than #hippfest?

Hats off to Alison Strauss and her team and Falkirk Community Trust to – Hippfest is a triumph.

UPDATE: Here’s my Hippfest report for the Guardian film blog

The Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema takes on the Oscar night selfie! Clockwise from top left: Al Hammond, Mike Nolan, Bryony Dixon, Pamela Hutchinson (moi), Mark Kermode, Shona Thomson, Aly Hirji, Ali Strauss, Kevin Brownlow, Neil Brand and Mike Hammond.

David Cairns posted this fine review of Beggars of Life on his blog Shadowplay and also had fun spotting tartan in every film on Saturday.
