Minghella Film Festival held in Isle of Wight

Well-known faces from the world of film and TV gathered in the Isle of Wight at the weekend for the annual Minghella Film Festival.

Names including John Hurt, Duncan Kenworthy, David Threlfall and Diana Quick were among those to pay tribute to the late film-maker Anthony Minghella, the Isle of Wight Country Press reports.

The event included live readings of some of his most famous works, as well as the chance for emerging talent to showcase their skills.

A live performance of the radio play Cigarettes and Chocolate was singled out for praise by VentnorBlog reader and Isle of Wight resident Lois, who said she felt "privileged" to attend.

"With just two hours rehearsal, the cast of seven gave the play the justification it deserved with their outstanding performances," she wrote.

Lois added that watching a radio drama being performed live added an extra "colour" to the experience.

This comes after Gioia Minghella, sister of the late film director and organiser of the festival, described the event as a "unique" tribute to her brother's "extraordinary artistic legacy".
