The silent film era is long ago and far away, and may be remembered only by our most senior of citizens.

But silent films are still made, even by very young people.   

The Renaissance Theatre in Mansfield hosts the International Youth Silent Film Festival for the midwest region next month.

Thirty three-minute films were submitted.  

The 1929 Mighty Werlitzer organ, acquired by the Renaissance in 1985, will provide the live musical theme for each film.

The silent film festival is April 5th and 6th at 7 pm each night.

Four winners will be announced, and each will go to the international competition in Portland, Oregon.
