The Anthony Burgess Lecture: Hugh Stoddart on Screenwriting and Earthly Powers
- Wed 25 Nov 2015
- 7:00 pm
The 2015 Anthony Burgess Lecture will be given on 25 November by the acclaimed screenwriter and film director Hugh Stoddart, who is well-known for his original screenplays and his film and TV adaptations of To the Lighthouse, We Think the World of You, and The Mill on the Floss. The talk will be accompanied by clips from Hugh’s work.
Hugh will discuss the excitement, hope and loss that come when a screenplay goes un-filmed, and the joy that arises when a film project goes into production.
Foremost among these ghost projects is Hugh’s film adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s magnificent novel, Earthly Powers. Hugh will talk about the obstacles he faced in tackling such a huge project, as well as discussing the challenges presented by screenwriting in general. Free Entry. Sign up now.
