We want to bring the poetry of silent moving images back to the present!

As a group of musicians, artists and film professionals we create a platform for contemporary silent movies. Therefore we are building up a network and organise events to connect the roots of cinematography with the present aesthetics of image and live music production.

Click here to read more about the questions:
Can silent cinema still exist today and what defines a silent film?

Silence is not silent.

Moving Silence was originally founded in summer 2009 by the musician Marco Brosolo, filmmaker Matthias Fritsch and producer Federico Bassetti. Since the end of 2009 Anastasia X. is collaborating with us as producer & event coordinator for Athens, Prague and other cities.
