Description

Public Debate 'At The Flicks-Or Netflix?'

The controversy over Alfonso Cuaron's feature Roma which was rejected by Cannes because of its funding from Netflix and then went on to win the Golden Lion at Venice and many awards at the BAFTA and 'Oscars' ceremonies yet had its cinema release in several countries clouded prompts our topical Public Debate on the morning of Friday 26th April on the theme 'AT THE FLICKS--OR NETFLIX?'

In the historic Regent Street Cinema, the very first venue in Great Britain where films were first screened in public by the Lumiere Brothers and which is now one of the loveliest cinemas in London and one of the few to screen films on 35mm an invited panel of distinguished professional film-makers, directors, producers, actors, critics and cinema-programmers from Europe and Turkey will discuss the state of film-making and film viewing today- comparing and contrasting the big and small screen experiences but also finding the positive aspects of streaming services that fund films which the major studios would not finance and make available foreign language features and TV series that audiences overseas could not otherwise see.

The discussion will be moderated by Phillip Bergson of the UK Critics' Circle who is a BBC broadcaster and script-writer. Bergson will be accompanied by talented Turkish Actor Emre Kızılırmak, film critic Kerem Akça and renowned director Tony Palmer.
