Hippodrome Silent Film Festival (online edition)

What our judges said:


A really innovative scheme to promote engagement with film at a challenging time for cinemas everywhere. The way in which different online spaces and social media were used to bring people together and promote access to the festival was particularly impressive.


It is incredibly impressive and innovative to have created an online festival that emulates an in-person festival so well. The number of platforms used, forums created and extras offered are wonderful to see, and demonstrate a real desire to go above and beyond in creating this festival. The sense of community cohesion is very clear in putting the festival together - well done and we’re glad it was such a success.
