Debbie Isitt: Nativity and Beyond

DEBBIE ISITT, Coventry Film Maker and Coventry University alumni, is returning to the city this week to show exclusive clips of her latest film, Nativity at the latest in the Coventry Conversations series.

ConfettiMoviePoster2Nativity, set and filmed in and around Coventry and is due to be released on 4 December this year. It will be Debbie’s fourth feature film to date demonstrating the improv acting style she’s known for.

Following on from the success of Confetti, the 2006 British comedy that starred Martin Freeman and Jimmy Carr amongst other well known British comedians, Debbie has gone for a similar set up with this film.

John Mair, founder of the Coventry Conversations, comments:

“Debbie has a very unique style of direction in that she doesn’t write scripts as such, she lets the actors improvise their own lines. This makes for some very exciting footage and for your chance to see this first hand, don’t miss her lecture this Thursday.”


Debbie Isitt’s Coventry Conversation, Making Nativity, is free and open to all and will be on Thursday 22 October at 1pm in ETG34, the Ellen Terry Building, Jordan Well.

Also, On 23 November a major exhibition on the making of ‘Nativity’ will open in the Ellen Terry Foyer.
