TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The upcoming Kansas Silent Film Festival will feature a salute to Charlie Chaplin and a showing of early animation and cartoon creations.

The free festival will take place Feb. 28 and March 1 at Washburn University in Topeka.

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.
