BFI 'Shakespeare on Film'

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare - the UK's greatest playwright, dramatist and poet. 

2016 will see major world celebrations of Shakespeare's life and works. Like his legacy, celebrations will reach far beyond the theatre in order to reflect the extraordinary scope of his works. His plays and poetry continue to be adapted, interpreted and translated in new ways, continuing to remain relevant to contemporary audiences - especially in film.

Shakespeare on Film will see Chapter and Pontio show some of the Bard's greatest works on the big screen.

Chapter will be working with the British Council to show family-friendly screenings, cult selections and discussions with academics and experts to examine Shakespeare’s relationship with Wales, while Pontio will be offering a unique one-off cinematic experience of Macbeth (1964) in Welsh from the BBC archive.
