Giving. Enchantment. Taxes.

'Tis the time of year when you can support one of the Bay Area's most enchanting cultural events and take a tax write-off!
Our wonderful members and sponsors have made 2012 the most exciting year in our 17-year history! Our spring presentation of Kevin Brownlow's restoration of Napoleon accompanied by maestro Carl Davis set the bar high. We followed it with a triumphant summer festival that included the gorgeous restoration of Pandora's Box accompanied by the world premiere of Matti Bye's beautiful new score; Paramount's restoration of Wings accompanied by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra with live Foley effects by Academy Award-winning sound designer Ben Burtt; Buster Keaton's The Cameraman preceded by an audience full of Buster Keatons (courtesy of our friends at Fandor). We launched a new website that contains all of our essays from years past and is full of beautiful images. We are adding new information all the time, and promise interesting articles and links to come. We could go on... 

We have exciting plans for this upcoming year (including our Silent Winter event on Feb. 16, our summer Festival July 18-21, and a very special spring presentation we'll be announcing soon) and we hope you'll join us in the festivities. Your support has made San Francisco Silent Film Festival the largest and most important event of its kind in the Americas.

We hope you'll take this opportunity to support us and take a well-deserved tax break!
Here's to 2013!
