It's almost a hundred years since a film called The Jazz Singer was released and changed everything; it was the first sound movie, and within a year the silent movie industry was dead. Which is why an upcoming event called The International Youth Silent Film Festival is rather surprising... Simon Morris talks to Megan Peacock Coyle, the New Zealand co-ordinator of the International Youth Silent Film Festival.

Entries close on the 1st of October, and the finals take place in Tauranaga in November.
