Wharton Studio Museum’s 3rd Silents Roar! Film Festival Moving Online for 2020!

While the Screening & Awards Ceremony for Silents Roar! Film Festival — the 3rd year of this fest — was originally scheduled for April, that event will no longer take place due to the current health crisis, WSM is working with the festival’s Presenting Sponsor — the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College — to bring the festival online!  Numerous middle and high school aspiring filmmakers from across the Southern Tier have registered for the festival and begin working on their films, and WSM wants to acknowledge the work, energy, and creativity that’s already been invested in the festival. Moving the festival online will help do that. Both the Registration deadline and the Submission deadline has been extended. WSM is grateful to the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College for its generous support of the festival.
