Nathan Avakian and the Youth Silent Film Festival
The Alabama Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society presents Nathan Avakian & the International Youth Silent Film Festival Locals know that the Alabama Theatre’s Mighty Wurlitzer is the engine that runs this block, but few festival-goers realize that the theatre organ is an integral part of cinema history. Organist Nathan Avakian will provide the soundtrack for a historic silent short, then accompany a selection of contemporary short films from the International Youth Silent Film Festival (IYSFF). The IYSFF inspires young filmmakers around the world to share their stories as they reinvent the art of silent film. Presented by the Alabama Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society.
