With the advent of Covid-19, we were faced with the possibility that BridLit might not be able to go ahead as a live event. Behind the scenes we talked about what we could do if this were indeed the case. We wanted to do something a bit different from Zoom interviews. Something that would, perhaps, represent books and writers in a visually stimulating way, and at the same time represent the creative spirit of Bridport and the surrounding environment. To this end we decided to use local filmmakers and authors with some connection to the Southwest, to produce a series of short films. They are meant to be small pieces that reach into the imagination and give the viewer a ‘feel’ of the books and writers.
Happily, we are going ahead with BridLit ‘live’, but as two of these films were already in the making, we would like to showcase them as ‘teasers’ for the live events to follow.
We hope you enjoy them!
