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.

    Creating a vision of what it really means to be British in this Brave New World is Fifth Column Films production of Shakespeare’s Tempest bold assertion. Liane and I were invited to the exclusive screening of the Tempest as a part of the launch event of the Shakespeare Film Festival in Stratford last night.

    If you get a chance to go to any of the screenings, do so. Check out their website for more details.
