Description

Free screening and Q&A with filmmaker, Jeanie Finlay

Doors 6.30pm. Screening 7pm. 25th Sept, Base Camp, Middlesbrough

Creative Factory are pleased to present a Q&A and free screening of Emmy nominated Game of Thrones: THE LAST WATCH.

Teesside artist and ‘SOUND IT OUT’ film maker Jeanie Finlay, who studied at The Northern School of Art (formerly CCAD), will present her film before a Q&A with Creative Factory and the audience.

For a year, acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay was embedded on the set of the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones,” chronicling the creation of the show’s most ambitious and complicated season.

GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland. This insightful documentary had its worldwide premiere on HBO one week after the series

Made with unprecedented access, GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH is much more than a “making of” documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.

Finlay’s previous films include the award winning SOUND IT OUT, a heartfelt documentary about Stockton’s Sound It Out record shop and the regular customers who visit.

Creative Factory’s Gordon Dalton said ‘We are so pleased to welcome Jeanie back to Teesside for this free screening. Obviously it will appeal to Game of Thrones fans, but also a local success story about how an artist can go from college to have a wide and diverse career.’

Finlay’s current film, Seahorse, which is currently on release, follows one trans man’s pioneering quest to fulfil an age-old desire: to start his own family. Previous films include Panto!; Orion; The Great Hip Hop Hoax and Goth Cruise.

Tickets are free but limited.
