The Giornate del cinema muto (referred to in English as Pordenone Silent Film Festival) is a festival of silent film in Pordenone, northern Italy. It is the world's largest festival of this type.
The festival was founded in 1981 by students hoping to bolster the morale of the victims of the 1976 Friuli earthquake. Their itinerant show of old silent films eventually found a stable home in Pordenone.
