Bridport Literary Festival are co-hosting with From Page to Screen film festival

Christopher Hampton and Francine Stock in conversation

Electric Palace | April 28, 5pm

Bridport Literary Festival are delighted to have been invited to ‘co-host’ this event, which forms part of the From Page to Screen film festival: An in-depth conversation between radio and television presenter and novelist, Francine Stock and screenwriter and playwright, Christopher Hampton about the challenges and rewards of adapting theatre for film.  

‘From Stage To Screen’ will include excerpts from the films discussed like ‘Dangerous Liaisons‘ and ‘The Father‘, for both of which Christopher Hampton won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay.

Francine says of this ambitious event: “This will be so interesting – Christopher Hampton’s achievements over decades as a dramatist for both stage and screen demonstrate his deep understanding of the strength and needs of each art.  I can’t wait for his insights into the relationship between story, character and audience whether in a cinema, on a stage – or indeed live at the Electric Palace!”
