Alice Lowe at ASFF 2013

Alice Lowe at ASFF 2013

Actor/writer Alice Lowe has has appeared in some of the UK’s best loved TV comedies (Black Books, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace), and the popular British films Hot Fuzz and Kill List and most recently is co-writer and star of the acclaimed black comedy Sightseers. This November ASFF sees Alice Lowe join our line-up of masterclasses to deliver an engaging and insightful account of screenwriting.

Taking place on Friday 8 November at York Theatre Royal, Alice will discuss screenwriting techniques and how performance can be used as a writing tool.

Her recent film Sightseers, depicts the lives of ordinary – read slightly boring – couple Chris and Tina (Steve Oram and Alice Lowe) on a far from idyllic caravanning holiday. In grim weather, they take in such UK hotspots as Keswick Pencil Museum and the Ribblehead Viaduct. Then, for a bit more “excitement”, they begin to bump off their fellow campers.

In an altogether good way, it has just a touch of the absurd, with montage sequences of their very British vacation sitting intentionally oddly alongside their murderous activities.

ASFF masterclasses take place on Friday 8 November among our film screenings which run from 10am – 11pm daily Friday 8 November – Sunday 10 November.
