Birmingham is becoming increasingly popular as a backdrop for all kinds of film and television, from the zombie dystopia of The Girl With All the Gifts to 70s spy thriller The Game.

This event at Digbeth’s premier theatre, The Mockingbird, is a chance to peek behind the scenes and an insight into how these productions end up shooting here, from two very special guests:

  • Ian Hutchinson was Location Manager for The Girl With All the Gifts, the newly-released thriller starring Gemma Arterton and Glenn Close, which was filmed on location in Birmingham City Centre.
  • Ali James was Location Supervisor for Ready Player One, the Spielberg movie which recently completed shooting in Digbeth and the Jewellery Quarter.

A City of a Thousand Locations is part of Flatpack’s Birmingham on Film season; for more information visit the website here.
