The acclaimed documentary The First Film, which was partly inspired by my 2008 book Made in Yorkshire, will next play at the New British Film Festival in Moscow.

It’s the latest festival date for the film and shows how the Le Prince story is being gobbled up by an eager worldwide audience who are now beginning to rewrite their notion of established and accepted movie history.
