David Cox is a writer and television producer. He has contributed to many publications, including the New Statesman, Prospect, the Guardian, the Times, the Independent, the Daily Telegraph, the Observer, the Sunday Times and the Evening Standard, mainly on communications and environmental issues.
He has made programmes for ITV, the BBC and Channel 4, mainly about current affairs and history. He was also head of current affairs at London Weekend Television for five years.
Jorge is a writer and director based in Manchester, creating work for both stage and screen. His love of film was sparked at an early age by the classic 007 adventure, Goldfinger, and this led him to explore the cinematic world of Bond, and beyond. Jorge hopes to work as part of HOME’s Young Film Programmers team to provide cinema-going experiences to young audiences that they might not find anywhere else. Outside of cinema, Jorge enjoys music, reading, Polaroid photography, tennis, and the New York Knicks. He is also one half of the ‘Crass!’ podcast alongside Paul Austin.
Lily is a student from Manchester with a love for a variety of films from Star Wars to Eraserhead. In her spare time, she can be found at the cinema, in the kitchen, or curled up with her cat and a poetry collection. Lily’s aim is to introduce audiences to new and exciting ideas through film and hopes to expand even the casual movie-goer’s comfort zone when it comes to cinema.
