Avro Lancaster Just Jane  recently played a starring role in a new film currently in pre-production for East Lindsey District Council. Directed by Philip Stevens for Red Dog Film, and without giving too much of the plot away, the eighteen minute long drama documentary follows the lives of a young crew of a wartime Lancaster on and off operations.

 

All being well, the production process should be completed in time for its premiere at the region's major coastal arts and film SO Festival taking place during June and July. The film will also be offered to schools in the region for educational purposes. You can follow the film's production progress via Twitter @lancastermovie and @NX611JustJane or on the film crew's Facebook page.
