Part of BAFTA's 2011 Screenwriters' Lecture Series: watch the video of Frank Cottrell Boyce now on BAFTA Guru.
The full length Frank Cottrell Boyce lecture video is available to watch now on BAFTA Guru.
On 27 September, Frank Cottrell Boyce spoke at 195 Piccadilly as part of the 2011 BAFTA and BFI Screenwriters' Lecture Series.
The Liverpool-born writer's 1998 biopic of Jacqueline du Pré - Hilary and Jackie - earned him a BAFTA nomination for Best Screenplay. His collaboration with Michael Winterbottom on 2002's 24 Hour Party People brought his work to an even wider audience. Along with another five scripts for Winterbottom, Cottrell Boyce has written for Danny Boyle (Millions) and Alex Cox (Revengers Tragedy).
Real-life stories are always more surprising and more exciting than stuff you can make up.
