The FIAF tour - 25 silent movies in one Hollywood block

Unread post by SilentEchoes57 » Sun May 21, 2017 6:18 pm

Last month I gave a series of Hollywood walking tours for members of FIAF, the International Federation of Film Archives, which held their annual congress this year in Hollywood as guests of the Motion Picture Academy and UCLA. Here is a page from the brochure I prepared for FIAF and the Film Librarians Conference regarding the tour.


You can download the full brochure here https://silentlocations.files.wordpress ... r-2017.pdf, or simply view all the pages on my post ... fflc-tour/

While the brochure covers many highlights, overall the setting (just one block) encompasses 4 Chaplin films, 5 Lloyd films, 8 Keaton films, 25 films overall, including Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and Harry Houdini, and 49 distinct locations.

You can find details for the films not listed in the brochure at this text-only walking tour I've created. https://silentlocations.files.wordpress ... ngtson.pdf

Cheers, John
