We are delighted that one of last year’s key speakers, Rebecca Lenkiewicz, will be this year’s guest curator.
Rebecca attended the 2023 festival as Sir Christopher Hampton’s guest, where she discussed She Said. Her screenplay for She Said was nominated for the BAFTAs best adapted screenplay and Golden Globe Critics’ Choice Award. In 2024 she will be bringing to From Page To Screen her experience of every aspect of adaptation – from performance to writing and directing – as well as a passion for sharing these insights with audiences and emerging filmmakers too.
“I had such a wonderful time in Bridport last year with its amazing film festival. I’m excited to be curating this year and the films and events at the festival are varied and brilliant.
We’re exploring the themes of Life Stories and Future Worlds. Films include the new Herzog’s heartbreaking classic “The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser” and Carl Theodor Dreyer’s “The Passion of Joan of Arc” with a live accompaniment.
There are some terrific documentary feature films including Paul Sng’s “Tish” showing alongside his portrait of “Poly Styrene: I am a Cliché”. It’s going to be fantastic. Classic. Moving. Punk. Vibrant!” Rebecca Lenkiewicz
