From Page To Screen

Bridport’s film festival is back in town with an extraordinary programme celebrating cinema; the art form that brings you the unexpected.


Bridport’s From Page To Screen Film Festival is back, with a stunning programme of over 20 adaptations being screened from Wednesday 27th April to Sunday 1st May.

This year, curator Edith Bowman is bringing her passion for soundtracks to her selection for each decade of cinema, from the 1927 Hitchcock masterpiece ‘The Lodger‘ to Eighties gem ‘Paris Texas‘ with its unforgettable score by Ry Cooder.

There are special events and speakers throughout the festival including a live piano score during ‘The Lodger’, a ‘Pinocchio’ puppet workshop for children, a Q&A with Mark Hix after ‘Boiling Point‘, and a fascinating exhibition in the Bridport Arts Centre’s Allsop Gallery from Exeter’s Bill Douglas Cinema Museum.

As well as classic films chosen by Edith and the Film Society’s annual 11 am slot, the festival will screen some of the best current examples of adaptation; ‘Spencer’, ‘Flee’, ‘Nightmare Alley’, ‘Operation Mincemeat’ and a preview screening of ‘The Drover’s Wife’.

Guest Curator Edith Bowman

This year, we are thrilled to welcome back broadcaster Edith Bowman who has been supporting From Page To Screen since 2019 when she started devising the plan for the 2020 festival and went on to curate the covid-friendly streamed event which took place last year. Edith will be coming to Bridport with her selection of films through the decades, driven by her passion for soundtracks.
