TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The winter storm isn't robbing silent film fans of the chance to attend an annual festival in Topeka.

Kansas Public Radio reports that the Kansas Silent Film Festival will begin as planned Friday night at Washburn University, despite the snow storm that forced the campus to close.

The free festival continues through Saturday in White Concert Hall.

The film lineup includes several short Keystone comedies produced by Max Sennett. Kansas City film historian Denise Morrison will provide introductions for the films and give an overview of the artists and the era of the silent films.

Some films will be shown on 16mm film, while others may be projected digitally, due to the rarity of actual film material.

Musical accompaniments will be provided mostly by organists or a five-piece chamber ensemble.
