Liane interviews Marian Morgan, Festival Co-ordinator about Shakespeare Film Festival.
The month of October will see a two-week festival featuring a programme of iconic films and adaptations of Shakespeare’s works with guest speakers talking about the dramatist’s impact on cinema across the ages.
From Gnomeo & Juliet matinees for children, to Henry V, the first Shakespeare Film Festival will feature a programme of iconic films and adaptations of Shakespeare’s work. Many of the screenings will have quest speakers including leading actors and directors discussing Shakespeare’s impact on cinema across the ages. Whether your taste runs to rare archive silent movies or classics like the Burton/Taylor Taming of the Shrew the festival promises something for everyone. A new competition for films inspired by Shakespeare’s works will be launched during the festival.
