Growing Pains

Until Tue 14 Mar 

A Season of Films Programmed by Jessie Moroney.

Filmhouse’s monthly screening strand showing classic and contemporary films dealing with some of the more complex aspects of childhood. Jessie Moroney invites viewers to join her for a selection of introduced screenings that explore the the emotional turbulences experienced during our early years, and hopes to create a space that encourages audiences to share their own responses on how these films affect them now as adults, as catharsis or otherwise, during post- screening chats.

Jessie is a member of the programming team at Filmhouse and is currently attending the Practical Programming course run by the Independent Cinema Office. The course is designed to help participants to develop a fresh programme for their home venues. This programming idea was successfully pitched to the Filmhouse team, leading to a monthly screening of films focusing on childhood issues.
