Taking place at Curzon cinemas in Mayfair and Soho, 2019 is the tenth year of BAFTAs annual series. 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.
Only two films into his career Robert Eggers has marked himself out as a surprisingly distinctive voice both behind the camera and his meticulously researched scripts.
With 2015's The Witch he took a closeted New England community and blended a domestic chamber drama into a supernatural horror.
With his upcoming two-hander The Lighthouse, arcane maritime slang mixes with terse Beckettian back and forth.
Created by BAFTA-winning screenwriter Jeremy Brock, the series is supported by JJ Charitable Trust.
