From Page To Screen 2024


Bridport’s From Page To Screen Film Festival is back with a stunning programme of over 20 adaptations being screened from Wednesday 24 to Sunday 28 April.

From Page To Screen 2024 4We are excited to welcome back Screenwriter Rebecca Lenkiewicz as this year’s guest curator. Rebecca attended our 2023 festival as Sir Christopher Hampton’s guest, discussing She Said for which she wrote the screenplay. She is currently completing her directorial debut, a film of her adaptation of Deborah Levy’s novel Hot Milk, and prior to this project wrote the screenplay for the forthcoming film of best-selling memoir The Salt Path.

Rebecca started her storytelling career as an actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre, most notably starring in Sir Peter Hall’s production of The Bacchae. By 2008 she would become the first living female playwright to have their original play – Her Naked Skin – performed on the National Theatre’s Olivier stage. Her first film screenplay was Ida in 2013 which she co-wrote with director Pawel Pawelowski and would go on to win the 2015 Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

Rebbeca brings to From Page To Screen 2024 her experience of every aspect of adaptation – from performance to writing to directing – as well as a passion for sharing these insights with audiences and emerging filmmakers too.

‘‘I’m excited to be curating, the films and events at the festival are varied and brilliant. We’re exploring the themes of Life Stories and Future Worlds. It’s going to be fantastic. Classic. Moving. Punk. Vibrant!”
Rebecca Lenkiewicz
