DINARD FILM FESTIVAL
We were proud to have taken part in the 23rd Festival du Film Britannique de Dinard, in Bretagne, France, where Island Pictures’ film The Scapegoat played to packed houses.
Island Pictures’ producer Sarah Beardsall, and writer/director of The Scapegoat, Charles Sturridge, were in glorious Q&A attendance. No wonder the good folk of Dinard queued in the rain.
There was even a scuffle for tickets! Qu’est-ce qu’on va faire?

“Sturridge’s script is beautifully contained and his direction nimble. It’s a hugely satisfying two hours of television.”
“sweeps you along”
“The Scapegoat creeps up on you … until you realise that you’re gripped and even though it’s after your bedtime there’s no possibility of turning off until you find out how it all turns out.”
“When ITV pulls off period drama like this, accept no imitations.”
