Wootton Talks Tinsletown Trailblazers

Presented by MIFF 37ºSouth Market & Accelerator Lab, Adrian Wootton OBE returns exclusively to Melbourne for another series of his acclaimed Illustrated Film Talks, this year focusing on the end of Hollywood’s Golden Age and the transition to the turbulent 1950s, with a look at four legendary performers who each, in their own way, broke the mould and not only achieved worldwide fame but also altered the very course of film history through their influence and stardom – Sidney Poitier, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn and Tony Curtis.

A former director of the London Film Festival, British Film Institute and the UK’s National Film Theatre, Wootton is CEO of Film London & The British Film Commission, director of the Crime Scene Festival, and a program advisor to the Venice Film Festival, London Film Festival and Italy’s Courmayeur Noir Fest. Wootton has also contributed to the Guardian, Sight & Sound and BBC Radio, and received an honorary doctorate from The University of East Anglia.
