March 30, 2011 at 12:54 PM | by | ()

Martin Scorsese is taking a break from making his own films to curate Paradiso Outdoor Cinema, a four-night celebration of film at the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall, England.

The annual festival, held on Port Eliot's 4,000 acre grounds, began as a small book fest in 2003 and now includes music, movies, food, fashion, and art.

Eight films personally selected by Scorsese will be screened on each evening of the festival in the Paradiso outdoor cinema, set in Port Eliot's gardens with the River Lynher and Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s famous railway viaduct as a back drop.

Among the films Scorsese has chosen for the event are Murder on the Orient Express, North by Northwest, The Leopard, The River, The Narrow Margin, Human Desire, The Red Shoes, and All About Eve.

The festival will be held between July 21st - 24th, 2011, and each night two of the films will screened back-to-back. Adult day passes to the festival range from £35.00 to £55.00 and can be purchased at etickets.co.
