Battle of the Sexes screening and Q&A — live tweets and photos

Reading time: 22 minutes and 4 seconds

On Monday 9 October our members attended a special advance screening of Battle of the Sexes, directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, at the Charlotte Street Hotel. The film was followed by a Q&A with the directors, moderated by Joe Utichi. 

The discussion ranged from the responsibility of the director when portraying true events, recreating tennis for the big screen and capturing the aesthetics of the 1970s. Catch up with all our tweets and photos from the event below. 

After a great screening, the Q&A began.

Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton are a duo of American film directors. Their first feature film was the Oscar-nominated Little Miss Sunshine, and their second was Ruby Sparks. They have also directed numerous music videos, including for R.E.M, Jane’s Addiction and The Smashing Pumpkins. 

Joe Utichi is a film and TV writer and editor of Deadline Hollywood’s AwardsLine magazine. 

And after some discussion Joe opened the floor to questions. 

And with that, the event came to an end. 

After the screening, our members took to social media to have their say...
