Oscar-winning actor Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall, Bridge of Spies) hosts Intermission Youth’s young filmmakers, BAFTA nominated producer Sorcha Bacon (Wren Boys), and leading smartphone filmmaker Cassius Rayner in a discussion around first-time film making, smartphones and Shakespeare as inspiration.

2020 saw us hit with extraordinary events that have affected each and every one of us. From a deadly virus to a global equal rights movement, our world - its systems and its people - are being challenged. 

Social media played a massive part in spreading both positivity and negativity this past year. In response, Intermission Youth founded a filmmaking initiative putting Shakespeare to screen with its makers’ smartphones, and this panel will be punctuated by their resulting ten smartphone-made shorts, each inspired by a line of Shakespeare.
