Unconventional Characters

Biopic documentaries are notoriously tricky to get right. When your muse is a known figure, how do you ensure you stay on the right side of the thin line between biography and hagiography? The pressure to encapsulate a person’s life story in 90 minutes can be tough and audience expectations can be even worse. Our panel of filmmakers will share their experience of challenging the biopic genre and crafting biopics that go beyond the norm.

Speakers include filmmakers Sophie Fiennes, Pascale Lamche and Finlay Pretsell.
