Famous director to film piano competition

The  2015 Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition starts this week, kicking off with an event at Priory Meadow. Oscar-nominated British director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas, The Browning Version, Time Code) has been commissioned to make a film about this competition and will be working with a film crew for 10 days at the White Rock Theatre and locations in and around Hastings from this Saturday, 28 February. HOT’s Chris Cormack explains how a dedicated YouTube channel for daily streaming of the competition stages and other related events will also be set up with HOT as host.
