Watch screenwriter Charlie Kaufman deliver his first public lecture - as part of the 2011 BAFTA and BFI Screenwriters' Lecture Series.
On the 30 September, in front of a sell-out theatre at the BFI in London, Charlie Kaufman delivered the final lecture in BAFTA's 2011 Screenwriters' Lecture Series.
Kaufman - one of the few contemporary screenwriters whose name commands top-billing status alongside his films' directors - has quickly established himself as an uncompromisingly original and imaginative talent. 1999's Being John Malkovich, in which the eponymous actor plays a fictional version of himself, earned Kaufman a BAFTA Film Award for Best Screenplay - an award he picked up again for Adaptation (2002) and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004).
The full length Charlie Kaufman lecture video is available to watch now on BAFTA Guru.
Failure is a badge of honour. It means you risked failure.
