“Composing film scores means that the composer must adapt his ideas to the film, the director and the audience.” Ennio Morricone
Filmic is Watershed and St George's brand new festival of film and music running through February and March and focuses on two greats of the music world: legendary composers Ennio Morricone and Michel Legrand.
Mon 16 Jan was the much-anticipated launch of the Film Policy Review – a major report conducted by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport chaired by ex-Culture Secretary Lord Smith.
Our Head of Programme Mark Cosgrove tweeted his thoughts from the public launch and Q&A at @msc45 – check out his responses as the panel went over their findings and recommendations.
With 2012 upon us with a vengeance, we thought it would be fun to take a quick look back at a year in film here at Watershed.
2011 kicked off with a relatively unassuming royal costume drama by the name of The King’s Speech. It had a trio of great performances – from Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter – but no one (yep, not even us) quite expected it to be the box office (and awards) success it turned out to be.
