THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT!
NORTHERN IRELAND SCREEN & QFT50 PRESENT:
Join us in celebrating the success of Northern Ireland’s Derry Girls, Channel Four’s award-winning comedy series currently in production on its second series.
Created by Lisa McGee and Directed by Michael Lennox, Derry Girls is set in early 1990s Derry and focuses on a group of friends as they navigate the trials of teenhood against the backdrop of a divided city. Hilarious throughout, the Girls have won the hearts of viewers far and wide. With over 2.5 million viewers averaged per episode, and more still to ‘catch-up’, Derry Girls has become the most talked-about TV comedy of the year.
Following a screening of the final two episodes from Series One, to remind us all where we left them (amid a step aerobics routine that Jane Fonda would be proud of), we will be joined by the cast and creative team behind the show, for a Q&A session. This will be a fantastic opportunity to hear more about the journey that this series has been on over the last year, and to gain a sneak peek of what the Derry Girls are up to next!
Joining us for this very special night: Saoirse-Monica Jackson (Erin), Louisa Harland (Orla), Nicola Coughlan (Clare), Jamie-Lee O'Donnell (Michelle), writer/creator Lisa McGee, and director Michael Lennox.
Special thanks to Hat Trick Productions.
This event is presented in partnership with Northern Ireland Screen.
This screening is part of BFI Comedy Genius, a nationwide season celebrating comedy on screen. It is supported by funds from the National Lottery, led by Film Hub Midlands on behalf of the BFI UK Film Audience Network. See bficomedy.org for more details. #bficomedy
