Certainly the most impressive film of the festival so far, Premiere Scene attended the premiere of British star Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus. Based on the Shakespeare play of the same name; Fiennes, who had played the role on stage a decade earlier, directed the film himself. Choosing to revise and revisit the material with a cutting-edge crew; including screenwriter John Logan (Any Given Sunday, Rango) and award-winning Hurt Locker DP Barry Ackroyd the film highlights many of Britain's current social-political problems.
Premiere Scene would also like to welcome presenter Nicola Johnstone who covered Tales of the Night by French director Michel Ocelot (Dragons et princesses, Azur & Asmar:The Princes' Quest). Ocelot gave us a gracious insight into his working methods before his animation was screened in 3D.
