CFF // Fellowship presented to Jane Darke: Filmmaker, Writer and Artist

To top off the weekend, 2018 sees the launch of the Cornwall Film Festival Fellowship—a new award which honours lifetime achievement in the art form of the moving image. We are delighted to announce that the inaugural award will be presented to filmmaker, writer and artist Jane Darke. Jane lives on the North Coast of Cornwall, and her work is about those who live on the North Atlantic fringe and the ocean which pounds at her door. 
Her film The Wrecking Season is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand the effects of the Gulf Stream, and was made with her husband, Nick Darke, who died in 2005. Jane’s second film, The Art of Catching Lobsters, is about his life and her grief. Both films were broadcast on BBC4. Jane will present a selection of her work and take audience questions before receiving her award during Sunday’s closing gala.
