For many, last year’s Academy Award winning best picture, The Artist, was an introduction to the charm and power of silent films. The Denver Silent Film Festival this weekend is a great chance to see the history and techniques behind the Oscar winner. Kicking off Friday night with a showing of Wings—the first film ever to win the academy award for best picture—the festival continues with newly restored classics and lectures from top film archivists. The festival promises to be an entertaining tour through the foundations of modern cinema. Fri-Sun, times vary.
