Frank Buxton Silent Film Festival
September 15 - September 17, 2023

The Frank Buxton Silent Film Festival pays tribute to a true BIMA legacy and his love of Silent Films. At age 19, Buxton worked with the legendary Buster Keaton before going on to have a diverse career in the entertainment industry that includes credits for acting, writing, and directing. Frank's longtime friend, John Ellis (with support from the San Francisco Silent Film Festival) has curated three days of films that Frank would have loved in honor of his life and BIMA's 10th Anniversary. Event partners: John Ellis, San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

Series pass tickets are $50 for members and $60 for non-members.
