Joel Hopkins

The Journey from Script to Screen

Joel Hopkins is a BAFTA awarded film director and screenwriter, whose films include Last Chance Harvey (Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson), The Love Punch (Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson) and Hampstead (Diane Keaton, Brendon Gleeson).

His unusual status as both writer and director of his own films gives him a unique perspective on the ongoing creation of character and story, and how the page and screen continually inform each other. In this talk he will be sharing clips of both his written screenplays and his final scenes, explaining where and when changes happen, and the importance of grasping the magic of ‘happy accidents'.

All lectures start at 7pm followed by a live Q&A. Approximate finish time is 8.30pm.

Proceeds are in aid of St Mary’s church - a vital base for outreach services to vulnerable local people, including the elderly, the homeless and young people at risk.
