In part characterising the Film Festival have been the pre- and post-show talks by Shakespearians, film practioners, and experts.
Join us for a free webinar, Filming Shakespeare next Friday 26 October at 4.00pm (British Summer Time). I’ll be chairing a conversation with Shakespeare film expert, Professor Russell Jackson of the University of Birmingham. Russell has worked with Kenneth Branagh as a textual advisor on all of his Shakespeare films, and has unique insights to share. Professor Stanley Wells, who has also published on Shakespeare on film, will be joining in the discussion, too.
As part of the event we’ll be showing a specially recorded message by Kenneth Branagh which he has just sent to us as patron of the Shakespeare Film Festival.
