In its 21st year the Kansas Silent Film Festival's mission is to provide an entertaining and educational forum for silent films and it's one of the few free film festivals to do so. Every year, on the last weekend in February, from Friday night through Saturday night, come rain or snow or shine, the festival showcases films from the silent era with live musical accompaniment. All films are shown on a big screen like they were originally, and most are shown on film with a DVD being shown, if necessary.
The 2017 Kansas Silent Film Festival will put comedian, juggler and actor W. C. Fields into the spotlight with two of his rarest features along with a variety of other films headed for the Topeka, Kansas event. The 2017 edition of the KSFF will be staged at White Concert Hall on the Washburn University campus on Friday night, February 24th and all day Saturday, February 25th. The event is free and open to the public. All films will be shown on the big screen with live musical accompaniment.
