Lily Ashton (Researcher and development exec)

Lily joined LTLF in 2016 after graduating from University of Manchester with a degree in English and Drama. While in Manchester, Lily produced a play called Novel Experiments in Living, which made its debut in Manchester and then went on to wow audiences and critics alike at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. Written and directed by Rob Paterson, and starring Calum Pearce, Novel Experiments in Living has been described as a play “for a generation who feel defined by the culture they consume”, while Dr. David Butler, Senior Lecturer at the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama states that, “Novel Experiments… skilfully contrasts mature and sincere reflections upon being a young adult in the early 21st century with glorious silliness.” Lily continues to unearth great stories and talent with her continued love of stand-up and the theatre generally. She is expanding a slate nurturing her relationships, with as of yet undiscovered exciting new voices.

Films in LFF2019

This year my highlight of the festival was going to NFT1 to listen to an interview with Céline Sciamma, fabulously talented French writer director of Water Lilies, Tomboy, Girlhood (writer of the animated My Life as a Courgette) and in this year’s festival - her period piece Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
