FRIDAY 26 AUGUST
All day film festival.
Comma Film joins forces with MadLab this summer to bring Manchester's Northern Quarter an all-day short film extravaganza, premiering a host of new, specially commissioned adaptations (poetry adaptations commissioned by Comma Film, and short story adaptations from across Europe).
The day's events will also include an animation workshop, adaptation masterclass, poetry readings, and a special talk from author and cult Sci-Fi TV writer Trevor Hoyle
(culminating in a late night screening of his classic Blakes 7 episode 'Ultraworld').
To take part in the adaptation film challenge, go to www.versionfestival.co.uk

Poems have to be selected by potential filmmakers by Fri 10 June
. For more information contact Ra.Page@commapress.co.uk.
