The Globe International Silent Film Festival
"Where Pictures create an international language."
Our goal is to focus on the picture as the basic structure of cinema as an art.
We believe the silent era of cinema (1895-1930) has made the picture and mise en scène richer and more powerful. Although by introducing of sound in cinema we've been passed that era a long time ago but still silent cinema is carrying a great part of avant-garde and artistic films. GISFF aimed to gather, screen and respect these creative films.

    Dear Katharina,
    We deeply apologize for this miscoordination that we went through. Last year was the first year of the festival and we were facing some difficulties. We hope we can have you with us again with another great silent film and we hope we can make it up to you.
