Romance has been a key ingredient of the movies since they began, and happy couples coming together via musical montage are a familiar cinematic sight. But is there really any such thing as a ‘simple love story’?

Writer/director Francis Lee’s romantic drama God’s Own Country is so honest, affecting and sexy that it feels almost effortless, although that’s clearly not the case. We talk to Francis and explore his directorial debut in depth, from conception to casting to a myriad other creative decisions, in order to unlock the mysteries of love and find out how to bring emotion to motion pictures.

Head to the Great Arch Hall entrance for 18.30 to receive your complimentary dream-themed cocktail from the Grey Goose pop-up bar, accessed via Victoria Embankment. Talks start at 19.00 and last approximately one hour.

For the ultimate experience, you can purchase tickets to the main film screenings in addition to your Behind the Screen ticket (which gives access to Behind the Screen events only). In conjunction with a purchased ticket to Film4 Summer Screen, your Behind the Screen ticket gives you access to a reserved space in the courtyard where you can collect a second complimentary Grey Goose cocktail from the East Wing Bar.
