TT Cinema in Shoreditch will be hosting the London New Renaissance Film Festival this summer, bringing you two UK premieres from some of the hottest up-and-comers in the industry.
The second film to be gracing their big screen is the independent drama, Olympia, bought to you by Chicago-based up-and-coming filmmaker, Gregory Dixon. Olympia, Dixon’s University thesis and debut feature, follows the eponymous title character (played by McKenzie Chinn, who also wrote the screenplay) who is a struggling artist navigating work and romance in the Windy City. When her boyfriend asks her to drop everything and move cross-country, she soon discovers that her biggest obstacle may be herself. Featuring quirky animation and a revelatory central performance from Chinn, Olympia is a heartfelt tale for anyone who’s ever felt adrift on the rough seas of adulthood.
Gregory Dixon’s polished effort premiered last year at the L.A Film Festival to critical acclaim, and now you can come and see it for yourself in the UK for the very first time.
Tickets are £15 a head, or £20 for a pair when you use the code ‘olympia’ at checkout. Includes a complimentary cocktail and snacks. Book online
