13 – 16 JANUARY 2022


The festival

The Nederlands Silent Film Festival (NSFF) is the largest silent film festival in the Netherlands and takes place every January at Pand P and Parktheater Eindhoven. Both during the festival and throughout the year, the NSFF is committed to making this cinematic heritage accessible through screenings, educational projects, workshops and lectures, and aims to be a celebration of the creativity and innovation that abounds in early cinema.


The Slapstick Saturday is the annual highlight of the Dutch Silent Film Festival. This full-length film program is a tribute to the greatest slapstick stars of the silent film era. Enjoy this unique experience of film, humor and live music.

This year’s spotlight is on two nearly forgotten comedy duos: Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle in THE BELL BOY (1918) and Anita Garvin and Marion Byron in A PAIR OF TIGHTS (1929).


This evening’s main feature is a rarely seen film from one of history’s greatest comedy makers: Harold Lloyd in HOT WATER (1924). It is the only film in which Lloyd ever played a married man. Get ready for a crazy ride full of stunts, chases, mothers-in-law rising from the dead and, of course, an ingenious finale!
