Deloitte Ignite 2011 at the Royal Opera House: Festival Review

Over the 2nd - 4th September, the Royal Opera House was home again to Deloitte Ignite. Drawn in by the big names, I booked my free tickets and went along. These are some of my personal highlights, and in keeping with this year’s theme, “Just Tell the Truth”, some of the lows as well.

Mike Figgis held the creative reins at the festival this year. One of the names he had invited along was someone I was keen to see - Hans Ulrich Obrist, the director of the Serpentine Gallery and art mastermind. When we arrived at the epicentre of the festival, the Paul Hamlyn Hall, Hans and Mike were in deep conversation about Mike's career, and his thoughts on Hollywood. Mike spoke bitterly about what he saw as the corruption of mainstream cinema and wasn't abashed to name and shame, as he slammed Michael Bay and likened Steven Spielberg to Adolf Hitler. A poor shot from Figgis I thought.
