Smith ( The Ralph Stanley Story) , Michele Poulos ( A Late Style of Fire ), Chris Kirkley ( Rain the Color of Blue with a Little Rain in it), and premiere screenings of The Sad and Beautiful World of Sparklehorse , The Very Best of Rural Route , Between Dog and Wolf : The New Model Army Story , live music with silent films presented by Silent /Music Revival , archival selections from past James River Film Festivals and much more.  Additionally, a screening of critic/ director Kent Jones’ Truffaut / Hitchcock will be held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts on April 13th .  Other locations include the Byrd Theatre , VCU’s Grace Street Theatre , Richmond Main Public Library , Visual Arts Center of Richmond , the Bijou Film Center , and the Video Fan .

Silent Music Revival’s 10 Year Anniversary (Part 1)

During a Silent Music Revival event a classic silent short film is projected while local musicians act as the live soundtrack.
As an added twist the band does not see the film prior the event and therefore creates a new spontaneous score.

Silent Music Revival
presents:
Carl Theodor Dreyer’s
VAMPYR (1932) 

“Whatever you think of the director Dreyer, there is no denying that he is ‘different.’ He does things that make people talk about him. With scenes that are gripped with brutal directness. You may find his films ridiculous—but you won’t forget them.” 
– New York Times (1932)

with live musical score by:
NAVI
https://killnavi.bandcamp.com/

“The day and the night belonged to Navi. They were possibly the most outrageous band to perform at the festival and they simply owned it. The crowd went crazy in such an unexpected way that it was simply beautiful. Every once in a while, you get to sit back and watch a set from a band that just annihilates all of your senses. For that day at Hardywood, Navi captivated an audience in a way that just left me mesmerized. ” – RVA Mag
