Filmed at the 2017 Competition. Produced and Directed by Jared Sullivan. Assistant Director Mikaela Maranhas. Audio Engineer Christoph Thompson.
In 2015 Oscar nominated director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas, The Browning Version, Time Code) was commissioned to make a film about the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition. He produced a series of short films throughout the competition- available on our YouTube Channel. An accomplished jazz musician and composer himself, the British director was keen to explore the issues surrounding the lives of young concert pianists working to establish a career, and equally what can be done to encourage younger audiences to experience classical music.
