Roger Michell, Director of ‘Notting Hill’, to be Subject of IFTA Focus
17 Sep 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
The Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) is to host an evening with director Roger Michell. Roger Michell is one of the UK's most acclaimed and diverse filmmakers of the last twenty years, known for helming one of the most popular British films of all time - ‘Notting Hill’, starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant.

The 'In Conversation with ... Roger Michell' event will be hosted on Wednesday October 1st in Dublin.

After directing several mini-series for the BBC, Michell made his big break in 1995 with the Jane Austen period adaptation, ‘Persuasion’. The film was released on British television, winning four BAFTA Awards, and theatrically in the United States, having been named by The National Board of Review as one of Top Ten Films of 1995. Michell then directed the award-winning films ‘My Name is Reg’ (1996) and ‘Titanic Town’ (1998).

After the smash hit ‘Notting Hill’, Michell's followed with dark thriller ‘Changing Lanes’ (2002) starring Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson. The film grossed almost $100 million at the box office. Michell also helmed the romantic drama ‘The Mother’ (2004), which earned leading actress Anne Reid BAFTA, BIFA and EFA Award nominations, and the film adaptation of Ian McEwan's ‘Enduring Love’, starring Rhys Ifans, Daniel Craig and Bill Nighy.

In 2006, Michell directed Peter O'Toole in one of his final screen performances to Oscar, Golden Globe & BAFTA nominations for the comedy-drama ‘Venus’, which was nominated for five British Independent Film Awards. In recent years he has directed the newsroom comedy ‘Morning Glory’ (2010) with Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams, and the political drama ‘Hyde Park on Hudson’ (2012) which starred Bill Murray as Franklin D. Roosevelt. Michell's most recent film ‘Le Week-end’ marked the fourth collaboration between the director and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and was nominated for five British Independent Film Awards. Michell’s latest project, ITV mini-series ‘The Lost Honour’ will air later this year.
