William Shakespeare 02

In anticipation of the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death, this year's Haddenham & District Film Festival will feature six films inspired by his works. They will be shown over ten days from 20th — 29th November, across three village venues in Haddenham, Cuddington and Long Crendon.

There will be three of the best screen examples of the plays, two popular movies inspired by Shakespearean themes and a live broadcast from the Garrick Theatre in London. The festival will be opened by a talk before the first film by director Richard Longcraine and producer Mary Richards. At the last show, local resident Bruce Alexander will close the festival with some thoughts of his own.
