RETROSPECTIVE AND Q&A: JANE LINFOOT - TEEN DREAMS
18:30 Sun 12 Jan 2014
Screening tonight are three of Jane Linfoot’s critically acclaimed short films that have all competed at international festivals. All three films (Youth, On Your Own and Sea View) that she has written and directed, feature young characters on the cusp of adulthood. A boy in care tries to make his way into normal life, a group of teens wrestle with adolescence and a teenage girl struggles to navigate a sexual situation with an older man. These stark and emotional portraits follow young characters trying to find their way through their mistakes.
Jane was selected for the initial Directors Lab at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2008, as chosen by Film4, the UK Film Council and Stephen Woolley; in the same year she was featured in Screen International’s. stars of tomorrow.
Sea View was made under the BFI Shorts Scheme, with Lighthouse and she is currently working on her first feature length film with the BFI.
