Five world-renowned screenwriters to deliver lectures at Curzon Mayfair and Curzon Soho from 30 November to 12 December
. It’s that time of year again when the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced its annual Screenwriters Lecture Series. This year’s line up features directors of films that are generating pre-Oscar buzz such as Parasite by Bong Joon Ho.

The Screenwriters’ Lecture Series exists to celebrate screenwriters’ authorial contribution to film and gives esteemed writers a platform to share highlights and insights from their careers with an audience of film-lovers and their peers. Created by BAFTA award winning screenwriter, Jeremy Brock, the series is supported by JJ Charitable Trust, one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts.

The 10th annual series begins on Saturday 30 November with a lecture from Pedro Almódovar, five-time BAFTA-winning screenwriter, director and producer. Almodóvar’s works include All About My Mother (1999), which won two BAFTA Awards and an Oscar, Volver (2006), and his latest release Pain and Glory (2019).

Roz is as picky about what she watches as what she eats. She watches movies alone and dines solo too (a new trend perhaps?!). As a self confessed scaredy cat, Roz doesn’t watch horror films, even Goosebumps made her jump in parts!
