Help turn the whole world on to silent film – join our team of writers and share your passion with fellow fans everywhere!

Guest articles are welcome from anyone with a love of silents. You may have not written for anyone before or perhaps have a book, blog, screening or something else you’d like to publicise. Get in touch if you’d like to review DVD/Blu-ray/book releases, or screenings, film festivals and other related events. Articles on any subject will be considered as long as they’re connected, however tangentially, to silent film, early talkies, film exhibition or the cinema-going experience, like these.

I’d also love to hear from you if you’re an interview-worthy subject. For instance, are you a musician who accompanies silent films or plays in an old-time band, an archivist or a maker of modern silents? Perhaps you’re a silent film fan of some renown, from working in a non-silents-related field, and would like to share your private passion with thousands of others with similar great taste?

Heck, if you’re connected to helping keep the spirit of the nitrate film era (1890s–1950s) alive in almost any way, Tell us about it. Naturally, if you have an unwritten idea for an article, feel free to run it by me… Now get scribbling! Brenton Film email address
