Indiana University Cinema proudly announces that it has become the new home for the internationally acclaimed comedy film festival, SLAPSTICON, coming this Summer, June 27-30, 2013. Formerly held in the Washington DC area since 2003, SLAPSTICON is a four-day Film Festival that is devoted to the revived exhibition of rare silent and early sound film comedy. It showcases the hundreds of film comics who graced the era that is now considered the Golden Age of Film Comedy, and focuses on the many other talented clowns apart from the well-known figures like Chaplin, Keaton, Lloyd, and Laurel and Hardy. Of course they will also be seen, and most often in films completely unknown to the general public. For more information, you can visit
