Acclaimed director Steven Lewis Simpson will be talking about all aspects of film production at our second Independent Filmmakers evening on Wednesday 11 April, 6.30pm. Steven has kindly stepped in to replace Lee Hutcheon, who has had to postpone his talk in order to allow him to concentrate on the edit of his soon to be released film ‘the Clan’. We hope to be able to announce a new date for Lee’s masterclass very soon.

Praise for ‘RETRIBUTION’ (2005): “Masterfully delivered in fine style …never flinches from attempting (and succeeding) to lift his film to new levels of storytelling expertise. A low budget picture with blockbuster aspirations, Retribution augurs well for the future of this ambitious and multi-talented filmmaker.” – Chris Flanders
