This year, we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of iconic films from Woodfall Studios and to help us, we are delighted to welcome Steven Hess as our guest speaker.
Steven is Tony Richardson’s son-in-law and as a result, the accidental curator of Woodfall films. He will tell us the Woodfall story and why it was created by Tony Richardson, John Osborne and Harry Saltzman. Woodfall was a company that was never satisfied with the status quo and for many it was a breath of fresh air in the film world of its day.
Recently, Woodfall has restored a significant number of its films and Steven will share the highs and lows of this work, plus many anecdotes of Woodfall films and their stars. The BFI have recently celebrated this restoration as part of British cinematic history and we are delighted to bring to our Chichester Cinema the best of Woodfall and showcase its pioneering and creative spirit. As an additional treat, our Education Team and guest speakers will share with you clips of ‘six of the best’ Woodfall films which we can all discuss and question.
Which Woodfall film would be your favourite?
Perhaps ‘Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, ‘Kes’, ‘Tom Jones’?
This promises to be a not-to-be missed day and we look forward to sharing it with you.
