On Friday there is a movie for pass holders only, the Gala reception followed by two films. Then on Saturday, there will be a collection of six movies that range from very old, silent films starring Mary Pickford, Erich von Stroheim or Douglas Fairbanks, to talkies and musicals. On Sunday there will be a showing of four movies. Money raised by the festival goes to the Marie Dressler Foundation and one of their activities is to provide bursaries for students in Northumberland High Schools
