Terry Gilliam honoured at Bradford International Film Festival

Bradford International Film Festival which runs from 16-27th March has announced that award winning film maker Terry Gilliam will receive the Fellowship Award and a retrospective tribute to his work at the 17th annual event. The Fellowship honours a practitioner who has made significant contributions to several areas of filmmaking. Terry Gilliam has definitely exceded this, bringing his unusual mind set to an array of films from Jabberwocky and Twelve Monkeys to Brazil and the widely loved Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Gilliam commented: “To be honoured by such an important festival pre-posthumously will force my family to treat me with some respect while I’m still alive.  I will always be grateful for that.”

As part of the retrospective programme of Gilliam’s work, Festival goers will be able to enjoy screenings of early shorts such as Storytime (1968) and The Miracle of Flight (1974) along with features including Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) and Time Bandits (1981). Gilliam’s latest short film The wholly Family (2011) will also be showing.

Elsewhere at the festival will see the first ever UK retrospective of the German rising star Thomas Arslan including his latest film In The Shadows and Claire Bloom, star of television, film and theater will be receiving this years Lifetime Achievement Award.

Full programme details and guests for the 17th annual Bradford International Film Festival (BIFF) will be announced in the Cubby Broccoli Cinema at the National Media Museum on February 22nd 2011.
