This year’s programme focuses on the relationship between film and the written text to bring a range of events to London and Liverpool, showcasing a few gems of Portuguese spoken cinema . The festival kicks off with a two-day conference on the topic of screen adaptation, followed by screenings, Q&As with directors, live poetry readings, special matinee sessions for school children and a book launch.

Many events are free and there will be something for everyone! We look forward to welcoming you to this celebration of the diverse and fascinating relationship between literature and film.
