Announcing The David Lean Blogathon

David Lean 2

You are all invited to take part in my latest blogathon. This one is being held to celebrate the career of the British film director David Lean.

He has become my favourite director. I especially love his ability to make films which balanced intimate human drama and epic backdrops. I also like how much care and effort went into his films in order to achieve certain shots, or in recreating a bygone era. He was truly a master of his craft. 

The blogathon will be held for two days on July 20th and 21st, 2018. You can write about any of David Lean’s films and I will be accepting two duplicates per film. As well as writing about his films, you could also write posts about Lean as a director, about his entire career, your favourite actors in his films, or you could focus separately on his smaller films or on his epics. You can write more than one entry if you want to.

Check the participation list below to see who is writing about what.

Please take one of the banners from below and pop it on your site somewhere to help promote this event. More importantly have fun writing!

      I only have Lean’s two Dickens adaptations left to review. I’m looking forward to seeing and writing about ‘Great Expectations’, so I will be extra happy to read your thoughts on the film!

    Hello! I am personally finishing up my David Lean Project and would be happy to share a couple of my publications if you accept previous writings. If so, I will sign-up for ‘Madeleine’ and ‘Hobson’s Choice’. 😊

        Thank you, Maddy! I’m not sure if we are connected via Twitter (or if you are even on there) but I would like officially say “hello” to you here. I updated my profile to include the link to my home site. I’m a part of a Film community site but if it is better for you, I can publish my work through my WP account. 🙂

    Hi Maddy, Can I add my old review (not used for a blogathon) on The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) trailer instead of A Passage to India? Cant find my copy of It, and love to add another post with a trailer review of Doctor Zhivago… Gill from Realweegiemidget Reviews
