What's on this week: 7 - 13 Sep 2009
Three fantastic films for you this week, all starting Friday 11 September. Fish Tank features an outstanding performance by 15-year-old newcomer Katie Jarvis; Mesrine: Public Enemy Number One concludes the explosive two-part biopic of Jacques Mesrine; and the exceptional The Hurt Locker (above) is a must-see, multi-award-winning drama following bomb disposal experts in Iraq.

On Thursday 10 September, Paper Zoo's production of George Orwell's Animal Farm comes to the Museum. Tickets have sold out -- but you can read a rehearsal report and see pictures elsewhere on the blog, and I'll report back from the event on Thursday.
Our Introduction To Screenwriting Saturday school starts on Saturday 12 September, with Joe Hepworth -- Screenwriter and Visiting Lecturer at the Northern Film School -- bringing a brainful of information about the theory and practice of writing for the screen. No experience is required: whether you're an expert, a beginner or just curious, we'd love to see you there.
