This year’s From Page to Screen Festival will take place from 24 to 28 April and will be a celebration of adaptations from page to the ‘big screen’.
This year Bridport Arts Centre will be working with the Electric Palace to deliver the five day festival.
From Page to Screen is the UK’s only festival commending the adaptation of books to film.
Each year a guest Curator joins us to provide film fans with a thought provoking line up. Previous Curators include Jon Ronson, Francine Stock, Charles Sturridge and Nick Marston.
This year we have Christine Langan taking on the role of Curator. Christine has an extensive background in film production and currently works at Baby Cow Productions with business partner Steve Coogan. Christine has produced films which include The Queen (2006), The Duchess (2008), Saving Mr Banks (2013).
Dumbo (PG) (2019) 130mins
Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe.
But when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
We will be joined by Diana Leszcynski after the film.
