“An extremely compelling first film with a fantastic lead actor. We loved watching him on screen and felt a deep empathy with him. Sharp editing, strong visual choices and a complex, painful and loving portrayal of family. We appreciated the specificity of the world you brought us into. Your dedication to your vision is palpable.”
– International Jury, Generation 14Plus, Berlinale 2013.
We catch co-writer/directors Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland as they settle down from a whirlwind A-list festival run with their debut feature film Shopping. The film premiered at Sundance ’13 and went on to compete in the Generation 14 Plus International Jury at Berlinale – winning the Grand Prix.
Come and hear Mark and Louis talk to chair Andrew Bancroft about holding a strong vision, keeping momentum in writing and what it means to compete on the world stage.
Stay afterwards for a drink and a slice of pizza on us.
