We’ll be asking festival-goers and participants to share their favourite book. Starting off the conversation off is producer, scriptwriter and photographer Dan Hall from London – you can follow him @limehousedan – who is photographing the festival this weekend.
“My favourite book is 1984. A bit of a cliche I know, but I’m not sure of many other novels that have literally changed the world. It’s used universally as a warning about what we should be wary of in a state. I’m chilled by the concept of Newsspeak – the state controlling not only what we think but how we say it. This reduction of language has a current relevancy: just look at texting and Twitter!”
