Hello readers, near and far!
Are we allowed to celebrate Christmas yet? I believe so. And I certainly didn’t want to delay sending my warmest greetings to you, wherever you are – and my thoughts go out especially to those of you who can’t be with the ones you love this winter.
Everything feels very uncertain right now, but I am taking a little comfort from the fact that despite adverse circumstances we have had almost a full calendar of screenings and events this year – and judging by the votes rolling into the Silent London Poll, many of you have been there, in-person or online, enjoying the best of silent cinema and live music.
I hope Asta Nielsen, and the prospect of more Asta Nielsen, can spread a little more cheer to you all. May the festive season bring you health, merriment – and many excellent films.
- Don’t just mull your wine, mull your answers to the Silent London Poll – every vote counts, this year more than ever!
- Silent London will always be free to all readers. If you enjoy checking in with the site, including reports from silent film festivals, features and reviews, please consider shouting me a coffee on my Ko-Fi page.
