Stanley Kubrick’s Producer Announced as Guest at Inaugural Morecambe Film Festival


Stanley Kubrick’s brother-in-law and producer from A Clockwork Orange (1971) through to Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Jan Harlan, has been announced as the headline guest at a new film festival coming to Morecambe this Autumn.

The Bay International Film Festival, founded by Anna Kumacheva, an award-winning filmmaker and lecturer at Lancaster University, and Darren Henderson, a film production company director and filmmaker, ‘will bring independent short films from all over the world to the area for the first time and hopes to inspire local filmmakers and audiences,’ a statement said.

The festival will span three days from October 27th to 29th and includes a lecture from Jan Harlan along with a special screening of Kubrick’s acclaimed Full Metal Jacket, produced by Harlan, who will also participate in a Q&A session.

The rest of the festival will feature screenings of the official selection by the festival judges and Q&As with the filmmakers, as well as networking events and an awards ceremony, before a closing reception event.

Festival producer and Lancaster University lecturer Anna Kumacheva said:

“I always knew that one day I would start my own film festival. I think that the timing is perfect now, and so is the location – a unique northern bay with no film festivals on its shores yet. I want to bring some amazing international short films to local audiences and invite talented filmmakers from all over the world to visit Morecambe Bay and have some exciting conversations.”

Tickets go on sale at the end of April. For more information, follow this link:
