The Star, the Toronto-based newspaper, has an article about the recent Toronto International Film Festival, and its traditional support of emerging female directors. The piece also discusses the issues surrounding why women’s participation in the film industry continues to remain so low.

18th September 2007 by Maura McHugh

The Stage reports that in the autumn season of the BBC’s Cuture Show there will be a special edition spotlighting the work of director, playwright, and screenwriter Stephen Poliakoff.

Poliakoff has created a one-off 45-minute television drama, called A Real Summer, that will air as part of his feature on the Culture Show. The piece is centred on a single actress, Ruth Wilson, and is shot on one location. It serves as a prequel to Poliakoff’s forthcoming BBC2 drama, Capturing Mary.
