28 Tweaks Later: London Breakfast Club with Screenwriter & Director Rowan Joffe

The Breakfast club is back and returning to the Phoenix Artist Club. Join us for 30 minutes of networking before sitting down for a cracking conversation with Screenwriter and Director Rowan Joffe, and finally wrapping up and networking your way into the weekend.

When: Friday July 28th, doors open 2.30pm / Speaker at: 3pm

Where: The Phoenix Artist Club

How Much: £10.00 plus booking fee


Rowan Joffe is an award winning writer and director, whose directorial debut, Secret Life, was hailed as 'a masterpiece' by critics at both The Times and The Guardian. His second directing project, The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall, won Rowan a BAFTA Award for Best Fiction Director 2009, as well as a host of award nominations, including nominations for Best Single Drama at both the BAFTAs and the RTS Awards.


In 2009, Rowan wrote and directed his film adaptation of Graham Greene's classic novel, Brighton Rock which was released in 2011. Also known for 28 Weeks Later, the cracking sequel to Danny Boyle’s fast paced zombie thriller 28 Days Later, his quietly intense adaptation of The American starring George Clooney and Before I Go to Sleep starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth, another adaptation that he both wrote and directed.


Rowan joins us ahead of his much anticipated TV debut for Sky Atlantic, Tin Star which comes to the small screen this autumn. BAFTA award winner Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) star in the ten-part series produced by Kudos.


Tin Star tells the story of Jim Worth (Roth) who starts a new life with his beloved wife and children in the peace and quiet of the remote Rocky Mountains. The tranquillity is short-lived however, as the arrival of workers from a new oil refinery leads to a wave of drugs, prostitution and organised crime. Shockingly, this coincides with the horrific murder of one of Jim's family.


His obsessive quest to find the truth behind this mysterious killing drives a revelatory story about love, corruption, grief and the all-consuming nature of revenge. Reigniting behaviour from his dark past, his journey leads to a personal battle with a long-buried demon that will not just defeat his enemies but threatens to destroy those he loves most.


Courtesy of SKY Atlantic, we are delighted to share the very first episode of Tin Star with all attendees who sign up so you can have a sneak peek of what promises to be another outstanding new UK drama with killer cast and a master story teller at the helm. Watch the episode then join us and Rowan for a very special Breakfast Club talk with a true master of the trade.


And remember, aside from a great talk, you will also get the opportunity to ask Rowan questions after the session, enjoy a pre-weekend tipple or two and also network with other filmmakers and screenwriters just like you.
