TRIBECA TALKS: PEN TO PAPER HOSTED BY BARNES & NOBLE UNION SQUARE--BASED ON THE BOOK
Successfully adapting a book to a film can be a challenging task. What are the elements that can best translate from the page to the screen? How faithful must the adaptation be to the original work? Is it possible to create a version of the story better than the book? TFF filmmakers Pen-ek Ratanaruang (Headshot), Charles Matthau (Freaky Deaky), Donald Rice (Cheerful Weather for the Wedding), and more discuss their experiences adapting fiction to film. Moderated by Mark Adams, Chief Film Critic and Reviews Editor for Screen International.
