This is the centennial year of the film Love Is Folly, and the festival can’t let that anniversary go unnoticed! So at Love Is Folly 2017 there will be a special celebration screening of the original film, accompanied by an orchestra as it might have been seen 100 years ago. In this way the audience will step back in time to enjoy a silent film from the dawn of the feature film era.
