A chance to peek behind the scenes of some Birmingham film productions

Birmingham is becoming increasingly popular as a backdrop for all kinds of film and television, from the zombie dystopia of The Girl With All the Gifts to 70s spy thriller The Game. This evening is a chance to peek behind the scenes of some of these productions, and gain more of an insight into how they end up shooting here from Sindy Campbell, Head of Film Birmingham.

Sindy will be joined by two special guests for this evening's event, both fresh from big shoots in Birmingham:

Ian Hutchinson - Location Manager on The Girl With All the Gifts, the newly-released thriller starring Gemma Arterton and Glenn Close. Other credits include Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Mordecai and Before I Go To Sleep. Ali James - Supervising Location Manager on Ready Player One, the Spielberg movie which recently completed shooting in Digbeth and the Jewellery Quarter. Ali's other credits include Spectre, Prometheus and Captain America: The First Avenger.

Presented in partnership with Film Birmingham, with drinks at 5.30pm and discussion from 6.00pm.
