- SLAPSTICK FESTIVAL 2017 HIGHLIGHTS -


Check Out Our Trailer!

With a 20% growth in audience this year , The Slapstick festival continues to go from strength to strength. Since 2005 Slapstick has presented 12 editions of the Festival in Bristol, showing  over 150 events to more than 36,000 people and introducing rare archive and silent comedy films to more and more diverse audiences  and we look set to continue for many more years to come!

Outreach

This year we are delighted to introduce our outreach project working with local schools through a new partnership with Into Film.  Year 5 children at participating schools will participate in a practical workshop to create a film sound track to a silent film. Children will create foley sounds, play a musical instrument, and take part in film music literacy activities. At the end of the school day there will be a live performance for an audience of school friends and family. Teachers from local schools will have the chance to attend a training session about sound tracking in the class room. If this of interest to your school please do not hesitate to contact info@slapstick.org.uk
