We’re getting news from France that Chagford Filmmaking Group has been awarded 57,000 euros of for a joint project with the Centre de l’Imaginaire Arthurien in Brittany to make a film of the 12th century fairytale of Sir Lanval.
The programme will also include exhibitions in England and France of the props and costumes and works of French and English artists on the theme of Lanval.
Elizabeth-Jane Baldry, who’s a top-notch string puller (that’s harpist to you) and power house of Chagford group, told D+CFilm: “Sir Lanval is a totally gorgeous story with a deliciously malicious Guinevere, a handsome knight and a whole great bunch of fairies.
“Brittany Ferries have come onboard the project by generously offering us free channel crossings for two years.”
The group also has a film, Peerifool, in post-production.
