“The Last Bookshop” is a short film that imagines a future in which bookshops have all but died out. Directed by Richard Dadd and Dan Fryer of British creative studio The Bakery, the film tells the tale of a boy who stumbles upon the last remaining bookshop. The directors created the film to highlight the decline of independent bookshops in the UK.
We love bookshops. But we saw that many are going through tough times.
We wanted to contribute to the cultural debate with our own celebration in support of these glorious independents and their shelves of treasures. So with the help of some remarkable independent bookshops, and a lot of talented friends, we have been able to make our idea for The Last Bookshop into a reality.
