Wigtown Book Festival showcases Lore

Events with Rachel Seiffert and Paul Welsh

Cate Shortland’s Lore will screen at the Wigtown Book Festival under its South West Picture Show Programme. The film will play tonight at 7.30pm in County Buildings and be introduced by its Glasgow-based producer, DigiCult’s Paul Welsh.

As the Second World War ends, five German siblings embark on an epic journey to their grandmother’s after their high-level Nazi parents disappear. Adapted from Rachel Seiffert’s Booker Prize-shortlisted novel The Dark Room, Cate Shortland’s film is a moving human drama and a compelling portrait of a nation in denial.

Tomorrow, Rachel Seiffert and Paul Welsh will discuss the long road from novel to the big screen in From Page To Screen: Lore.

The 70 minute event offers a unique insight into the journey from initial idea to shooting script that will appeal equally to aspiring screenwriters, readers and film-lovers. Introduced by Professor Nick Higgins, director of the UWS Creative Media Academy, it is supported by the UWS Creative Media Academy and Honeycomb Creative Works.

On Sunday 5th October, Rachel Seiffert will talk about her new book The Walk Home, which looks at a man returning home to Glasgow and a family torn apart by the sectarian divide.

The Wigtown Book Festival is a ten day literary celebration in Scotland’s national book town. This year, the festival has linked up with the South West Picture Show, a regionwide film festival taking place in October which celebrates Dumfries & Galloway’s thriving cinema culture.

For tickets to tonight’s screening, please contact the Wigtown Book Festival’s box office on 01988 403222 or call into the festival box office at the County Buildings. Tickets for tomorrow and Sunday’s events can also be bought from the website.
