All three films to be screened at this unique event (Youth, On Your Own and Sea View) feature young characters on the cusp of adulthood. A boy in care tries to make his way into normal life, a group of teens wrestle with adolescence, and a teenage girl struggles to navigate a sexual situation with an older man. These stark and emotional portraits follow young characters trying to find their way through their mistakes.

Book tickets here.

Jane was selected for the initial Directors Lab at Edinburgh International Film festival 2008, as chosen by Film4, the UK Film Council and Stephen Woolley; in the same year she was featured in Screen International’s ’Star of Tomorrow’.
