Vanessa Redgrave, CBE

Sun 1 Jan 2012

A very special on-stage interview with BAFTA Fellow and Guest Director of this year’s Brighton Festival, Vanessa Redgrave.

As a member of one of Britain’s great theatrical families, a political activist, and peerless performer on stage and screen, Redgrave’s career spans five decades. In addition to her work in the theatre, Redgrave has appeared in more than 60 films and countless TV dramas, winning Emmys, Golden Globes and an Oscar. There have also been, to date, three BAFTA nominations, for: Morgan: A Suitable Case For Treatment (1966); Prick Up Your Ears (1996) and The Gathering Storm (2002). Her most recent screen roles include Queen Elizabeth I in Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous (2011) and Volumnia in Ralph Fiennes’ directorial debut of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus (2012).

Redgrave was honoured with a BAFTA Fellowship in 2010. Here, she opens Brighton Festival 2012 with a personal celebration of her remarkable career and life.

This event forms part of BAFTA’s UK-wide learning and events programme, giving audiences across the country access behind the screens of the film, TV and video games industries.
