BIFF jury chairman to talk about cinema BNG

Film producer Jan Harlan — who worked with director Stanley Kubrick on some of the most memorable movies ever made — will tonight lead a talk on the qualities that define quality cinema.

Mr Harlan, who is serving as jury chairman for the 2014 Bermuda Film Festival, will discuss “making films that are so much more than just okay — that have watchability, longevity and the power to leave an imprint on the audience for a lifetime” said a festival spokesman.

German-born Mr Harlan, who was also Stanley Kubrick's brother-in-law, worked with the late American director on such classic films as “A Clockwork Orange”, “Barry Lyndon” and “The Shining”.

Mr Harlan later directed the well-received documentary “Stanley Kubrick: A Life In Pictures”, an intimate portrait of the acclaimed filmmaker which offered a rare in-depth look at the famously retiring director's career, films and creative vision.

The talk will take place at the Bermuda National Gallery at 5.15pm. Admission is free, and all are invited to attend.

The discussion is one of a series of events organised as part of this year's festival, which started last Friday and will continue until Thursday.
