The Purbeck Film Festival is delighted to welcome Stephen Woolley, one of Britain's finest producers, for the closing screening of Their Finest (see p45). Stephen's film production CV embraces Mona Lisa, Interview with a Vampire, Made In Dagenham, The Company of Wolves, Michael Collins, The End of the Affair, Back Beat, Scandal, The Crying Game, Carol and many more. At present he is working on two films: on Chesil Beach and Colette and Stephen's most recent production The Limehouse Golem, starring Bill Nighy, Olivia Cooke and Douglas Booth, is being released on 1st September in the UK.

It will be a golden opportunity for anybody interested in film, particularly British film, to listen to discussions and saks questions about the working of the industry, the work of the film producer and Stephen Woolley's eventful career. He is a man of unshakeable optimism, which is perhaps, they key ingredient of success in movie making. We are honoured to have him close our festival.
