HippFest, as the popular festival has become known, will take place between March 17 and March 21.
Due to coronavirus restrictions the festival has been forced to move online, which means a cracking line-up of celluloid classics – including German blonde bombshell Marlene Dietrich’s flick The Woman Men Yearn For – can be viewed from the comfort of your own home.
The online approach is nothing new for HippFest as it presented the silent thriller Filibus: The Mysterious Air Pirate (1915) – which featured The first female onscreen action hero – to cyber cinema fans last November.
The 10th festival will also feature live Q&As, a Silent Film Quiz, a Silver Screen Suppers Cook-along and lots more.
The full programme and tickets will be on sale from February 16.
