Join us for a session with writer-director Jessica Fox as she discusses the process of working to create her directorial debut, Stella. Producer Tabitha Mudaliar joins her for an evening of anecdotes from the set, and an insight into the little-seen world of filmmaking. Shot on location in Galloway House, Garlieston, and Wigtown, set in 1937 as the threat of war looms, Stella is a story of love, defiance, and secrecy. A special guest from the leading cast to be confirmed.
