Movie News: iTuesday Hosts Dolphins Film Premier at Cineworld

iTuesday hosts Dolphins film premier at Cineworld. Independent film-maker, Mark Jay is inviting film buffs to attend the premier of his first feature film, Dolphins at Cineworld on Tuesday 29 January.

iTuesday - Tuesday 29 January at Cineworld, St Margaret’s Rd, Cheltenham, GL50 4DU. Contact: 0871 220 8000 Screening starts at 7.30pm

The director’s cut screening is part of the iTuesday film programme, hosted by the University of Gloucestershire in partnership with the Gloucestershire Media Group and Cheltenham Cineworld.

The former BBC documentary maker will be bringing along members of the cast and crew to take part in question and answer session at the end of the event.

Dolphins is a gritty, modern fairytale teen romance set in the seaside town of Brighton inside the edgy and dangerous world of the Boy Racer gangs and Indie Punks the town is famous for. In the week before Christmas, a strangely beautiful and emotionally super-charged love story unfolds between two kids from opposite ends of the town; a Romeo and Juliet for the 'too fast to live' generation.

The young cast includes former Emmerdale star, Karl Davies, Lauren Steventon, Layke Anderson and Jason Maza. Frank Harper (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Bend it Like Beckham, Football Factory) has a supporting role along with Hip hop superstar, Roots Manuva in his first screen role. Source music is supplied by Brighton's Skint Records and includes tracks by Fatboy Slim and Lo-Fidelity All-stars. The original score was composed by Sacha Puttnam and Border Crossing.

“Dolphins is a low-budget British movie shot on HD and made with the passion and commitment of a highly skilled cast and crew drawn mainly from the South East region,“ said Mark Jay.

“The script evolved through a process of work-shopping with local kids and actors many of whom came from the gangs and subcultures depicted in the story. It has been made with the kind assistance of RIFE Screen South. We would like to thank the University of Gloucestershire and iTuesday for giving us this opportunity to present our movie.”

Tico Romao, event organiser and field chair in film studies at the University of Gloucestershire added, “We are delighted to present the UK premiere screening of Dolphins as part of the iTuesday series. And we are especially glad that the filmmaking talent behind the film will also be present at the screening to talk about its production. This will be a big bonus to our film production students and anyone interested in the British independent film scene.”

The iTuesday film takes place on the last Tuesday of every month at Cheltenham Cineworld and is open to all. Tickets are £4 and are available from Tuesday 22 January onwards from the box office. Telephone 0871 220 8000 for details.
