Stories About Place: Birmingham

Mar 03, 2020, 09:55 PM

The iFeatures podcast is back with a brand new series and this year we have a new theme: Stories About Place.

In this episode, we are in Birmingham. We hear from another of this year’s iFeatures cohort, Producer Kurban Kassam and Writer/Director, Billy Dosanjh, to hear about their debut feature film.

We also speak with Sindy Campbell, Head of Film Birmingham, as she takes us on a tour of the City, highlighting locations used for Steven Spielberg’s Sci-Fi Adventure film, Ready Player One, as well as discussing how the film office arm of the City Council accommodates all kinds of international and domestic productions.

This podcast is brought to you by Creative England, a national body that invests in creative talent and businesses across film, TV, games and digital media, to help turn ideas into reality.

iFeatures is led by Creative England and supported by the BFI (with National Lottery funding), BBC Films and ScreenSkills.
