In 1991, Michael Colgan, artistic director of the Gate Theatre in Dublin, produced a Beckett Festival ' all nineteen of Beckett's stage plays (minus Eleuthéria), performed to rave reviews and then imported to London and New York. During this time he began to consider the idea of turning all of the plays into films. Eventually connecting with filmmaker Alan Moloney, the "Beckett on Film Project" was finally realized in 2000-2001: nineteen films by nineteen different directors, each charged with adapting their play to the demands of film while adhering to Beckett's careful directions. Partially funded by RTÉ and Channel 4, the project called upon a wealth of talent from all creative spheres ' theater, film, television, acting, and even music. Although some of the "adaptations" raised some controversy, the final result is quite an acheivement, and represents a significant addition to the field of Beckett performance.
