Lizzie Gillett Comes to Downham Market - 8 February

Lizzie Gillett, the producer of The Age of Stupid, is coming to Transition Downham Market and Villages to give a talk about her work, which starred Pete Postlethwaite in one of his last films.

On the five-year production, she managed a crew of 105 people in six countries and raised one million pounds through the pioneering crowd-funding model. She organised the Guinness World Record beating Global Premiere, in which over one million people in 63 countries participated.

She was featured by Harpers Bazaar magazine as a “21st century heroine”, one of twenty “exceptional women changing the world for the better through the work they do and by Vogue as one of the UK’s leading “female eco-warriors”.

Lizzie will give a short talk about her work & experiences. People will then have the opportunity to ask about all aspects of Independent Film production and the various environmental projects and inspiring people that she has been involved with.

This talk in Downham Market launches a series of events throughout 2012. The programme provides us with inspiration for building a stronger community, better prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.

Wednesday, 8 February 2012 - Open at 6:45 for light refreshments and chatting!

Lizzie’s talk starts at 7:30 in the Town Hall Bar Room
