Silent film commonly refers to commercial film productions before the adoption of sound in the late 1920s. However, silent films encompass much beyond that — many 8mm, Super 8, 9.5mm, 16mm, and 28mm amateur films, home movies, experimental films, and even feature films were made without soundtracks long after the 1920s.
