Welcome to Finding Silents

Now it is possible for a partially extant silent film to be reconstructed - and be made complete for enjoyment once again.

Did you know...

that 70% of all feature length silent films made before 1929 are gone forever?

While some of these lost films are being rediscovered, many times only a fragment has survived. For example, only four or perhaps five 35mm reels of an original six-reel silent film has been rediscovered.

Sometimes derivative film sources are available to reconstruct the missing silent film reels. Finding Silents is the go-to website to discover if the silent film fragment in your hand has its mate in the form of a film booklet.
