This week's new film events

From Page To Screen, Bridport

Guest curator Jonathan Coe lends the appropriate literary lustre to this festival of movies adapted from novels, and for a respected author he's not as sniffy as you'd expect. Coe's list includes some successful examples recent and ancient – from True Grit, The Social Network and How To Train Your Dragon to Jacques Demy's Donovan-scored The Pied Piper and forgotten 1945 melodrama They Were Sisters – most of which are introduced by himself and other experts. Coe also talks to some of those concerned in the process, including Kazuo Ishiguro about the recent version of his Never Let Me Go and Bill Forsyth on his version of Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping, while Rowan Joffé discusses his recent adaptations of The American and Brighton Rock.

Bridport Arts Centre & Electric Palace, Wed to 17 Apr
