Patricia Lovell to deliver NFSA 2007 Longford Lyell Lecture
The National Film and Sound Archive has announced that Australian producer Patricia Lovell will deliver this year's Longford Lyell Lecture in Canberra on Tuesday 23 October 2007.
The annual lecture offers a national or international screen personality the opportunity to discuss cultural issues of major relevance to the art, industry and scholarship of the moving image.
Patricia Lovell's producing credits include Picnic at Hanging Rock, Gallipoli, and Monkey Grip. Her lecture, The Long Road to Picnic - the Hazards of Being a Film Producer, will explore what lured her into the challenging world of film production at a time when it was viewed as a risky business in Australia.
The 2007 Longford Lyell Lecture will be presented in Arc Cinema at the NFSA; followed by a reception.
Entry to the Lecture and reception is free but bookings are essential.
For reservations call Gail Sauer on 02 6248 2162.
