The Be All And End All: IW Screening With Q&A

By Sally Perry

Regular VB readers will remember us raving on about feature length film, The Be All and End All, produced and directed by Island-based film-maker, Bruce Webb.

The film releases in the UK at the end of next with with a premiere screening at the Empire in Leicester Square, before heading North where the film was made.

Digital projection enabled screening

Sandwiched between multi-million pound films like Harry Potter and Narnia, Bruce was pretty chuffed to be able to share his film with fellow Islanders.

“The film is opening in the Empire Leicester Square and on screens in the North West where the film is set, so to be able to have it on at one of my local cinemas is great news, made only possible by new digital projection” said Bruce.

Many awards and accolades

The film has already appeared in over 20 international film festivals including Rome, Berlin and Cannes where it has picked up over six awards, and the prestigious Variety Critics Choice award in Karlovy Vary.

“I am busy writing a new film, when I get the time in between festivals and releasing Be All and End All, which is set in the Isle of Wight. I started the Isle of Wight Film Network with my friend Eric to try and increase film-making on the Island and though this has helped, there is only one way to increase what is filmed here, and that is to shoot as often as you can on the Island. I’ve shot for CBBC and BBC2 here and the locations are second to none and probably the most diverse landscapes this close to London."
