Join us for our next Filmmaker Front Room Q&A with multi-award-winning, independent writer and director Ben Wheatley as part of Depict #shortitout.

Hosted by Film Programmer - Anna Bogutskaya, we'll be speaking to Ben about his impressive feature film back catalogue from psychological horrors Kill List (2011) and A Field in England (2013) to the screen adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s classic novel High-Rise (2015) and the action comedy Free Fire (2016).

We'll also be catching up with Ben about his latest blockbuster project, Tomb Raider 2 as well as his DIY approach to filmmaking and how this informs the way he works on large scale productions.
