Heads up, you media junkies! Next Saturday (Jan 24) make sure to head over to Broadway Cinematheque's Fifth Anniversary / The Music Movie MOMA Gala where they'll celebrate with a number of films, invite musicians to play along to silents, and hold a cinemarket.

At 7pm they will get things started with a “Movie Buffet,” series of early shorts from famous directors. Some of the films include Jane Campion’s Peel, Ridley Scott’s Boy and the Bicycle, Tony Scott’s One of the Missing, and Shunji Iwai’s Firework. At the same time, in another room they will be screening recent short film winners of the 2014 Taipei Film Festival. These include Golden Horse Award winners like 1+1, Guangong, and The Hammer and Sickle are Sleeping

At 9pm things will get a little more lively as a couple notorious musicians set up to score classic silent films, including Georges Méliès' A Trip to the Moon, Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid 50, and act II of The Princess of Iron Fan by the Wan brothers. Sonic accompaniment specially for the event will come from artists like Zhang Shouwang (Carsick Cars), Wang Xu, Yang Fan, and more.

The evening will end with snacks and a market at Kubrick, where they will have various goodies such as second hand movie posters, books, magazines, movie packages for sale. This is a must attend event for all of you cinephiles or media nerds out there. Tickets are going for RMB 350, or RMB 300 if you're one of those special member-type people.
