About the speakers
Carol Morley left school at sixteen and formed her Manchester band TOT who were 'going to be bigger than the Beatles before the next gas bill came around' but never were. After this she moved to Devon and London before eventually going to Central St Martins and studying fine art film and video.
Morley was awarded an Arts Council grant to explore her scurrilous teenage past and turned them into The Alcohol Years, a BAFTA-nominated film that received a Grierson Award. Interested in not just telling stories, but in how stories are told, she has made a number of award winning films that blur the line between fact and fiction. In December 2011 her feature film Dreams of a Life, which goes behind the anonymous newspaper headline of a thirty-eight year old woman who lay dead in her flat for three years, was released in cinemas to critical acclaim. Dreams of a Life received its network premiere on Channel 4 in February 2013, was released in cinemas and on DVD in the USA and Australia, and was nominated for several awards including BIFA, Grierson, Evening Standard and London Critics Circle. The Falling premiered in competition at the 2014 BFI London Film Festival, showed in competition at the Beijing International Film Festival, and also screened at selected festivals including Karlovy Vary, Copenhagen, Munich and Dublin. It was nominated for Best Screenplay at the Evening Standard Film Awards and nominated for Best Film at the BFI London Film Festival.
In 2015, Morley took part in BAFTA’s Brits to Watch Screenings in New York and Los Angeles with The Falling, and was selected for The Times Real Stars of 2015. Morley is the Wellcome Trust Screenwriting Fellowship recipient 2016.
