Silent River Film Festival Presale Tickets Available Through Monday So Order NOW!

The Silent River Film Festival runs Oct. 17-20 in Irvine, but Monday is the last day to buy discounted pre-sale tickets. Eighty-three films from 17 countries will be presented as part of founder and director Kalpna Singh-Chitnis's mission to bring "East and West" together and share "Cinema and Causes."

A full list of films will follow on the next page, but you should know that the ticket price at the door of the Edwards Westpark 8 in Irvine will be $12 each, but it's only $10 in advance online at Monday.

All-day passes, which get you into each presentation a particular festival day, are on sale for $30.

Meanwhile, Kalpna says she has received confirmation that opening night will bring Academy Award nominated and Golden Globe winning actress Sally Kirkland and the New York City band The Kin, who have movies and music videos screening at the festival. The band will be flying in from a tour stop in Australia.

Attendance to the gala requires a ticket that can also be purchased through the website, where you can also find more fest information. Or you can call 949.394.5148.
