Meet the 2017 Curator

Meet the 2017 Curator

Nick Marston worked with us as Guest Curator for From Page to Screen 2017 film festival, which ran from Wednesday 19 – Sunday 23 April.

 Nick is the Chairman of the Theatre, Film and Television Department at Curtis Brown, one of the oldest literary agencies in Europe. He is also Chief Executive of Cuba Pictures, a television and film production company. 

As an agent, he has nurtured the careers of a range of playwrights and directors, including Conor McPherson, Jez Butterworth and the director John Hillcoat. He also looks after the film and TV rights for many renowned novelists, such as John le Carre, David Mitchell and Jojo Moyes.   

Nick who is well-versed in the adaptation process said:

I have admired the festival right from its initiation and am delighted to be taking part. It’s a great idea for a festival and I can’t think of a better location than Bridport. 

Having spent many years navigating the borders between page and screen in my work as both a literary agent and film and TV producer, I am so glad there is a festival to celebrate this particular form.
