We were delighted to celebrate the return of CraftWorks in 2019, curated by David Review’s Editor Jason Stone and produced in association with JW Collective.

In FEBRUARY we staged the first event at BAFTA 195. Director James Marsh and Nils Leonard talked about the ITV Drama promos; we screened the latest winner of Homespun Yarn from director Steve Moss; an interview with Charlotte Bavasso; Strictly Superbowl featured Vaughan Arnell, Anna Carpen, Sue Higgs and Antoinette de Lisser; and we reunited Tom Carty and Walter Campbell. Here’s Jason’s report:

In MARCH, Jason chaired a panel at Advertising Week Europe - Directing Skill Sets: The Contrasting Demands of Television and Advertising - with directors Benjamin Green (MindsEye) and Molly Manners (Academy).

In APRIL, MPC hosted a CraftWorks short films special, with screenings and chat from Florence Keith-Roach,
Malcolm Green, Jack Spring and Lily Rose Thomas.
