Teenagers documentary film to have more screenings after sell-out world premiere.

Just last Tuesday 15th September, a 17 year old filmmaker from Britain’s most easterly town was hosting his ‘World Premiere’ where his first feature length documentary film was premiered.

Joshua Freemantle from Lowestoft in Suffolk created the documentary, Life of Lowestoft, with the hope it will help promote the town and create fresh new perceptions of Lowestoft. Billed as telling the ‘well deserved story of Lowestoft’, the documentary showcases the past, present and future of Britain's most easterly town..

The world premiere last week saw three sell-out screenings take place at the East Coast Cinema with over 240 attendees across the 3 screenings.

The feature length film features footage of historical interest, photographs and first-hand stories from the local community, the film also looks towards the future of the town.

Thanks to popular demand the coastal documentary film, will be having 3 more screenings in the afternoon at the cinema at the end of this month.

Lady Clare Euston, Lord Lieutenant in support of the film said: “It’s such an extraordinary documentary, it’s absolutely brilliant, clear and passionate about Lowestoft, and it’s full of hope for the future.”

“It’s probably the first time that someone has shown Lowestoft in all its best light, it’s a wonderful documentary because there is so much the town can offer and a lot of people as you have the wrong perception of Lowestoft that isn’t true today; there’s so much to offer and going on.”

For more information on the project by Lowestoft Rising & screenings visit lifeoflowestoft.co.uk. Tickets for the screenings at 1:15pm on Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th and Wednesday 30th September can be booked at eastcoastcinema.co.uk


Life of Lowestoft is a landmark documentary project which aims to shout about Britain’s most easterly town, by telling its unique story and celebrate the town's rich heritage and culture. The documentary looks at Lowestoft during both World Wars, through bombings and the infamous Waller's Raid.

The film has the local community at heart; it aims to raise awareness within the local community about the broad history the town has and there were opportunities for the community to be involved throughout the filming process.

We surveyed over 50 attendees at who attended our World Premier what they would rate the film out of 5 and we’re proud to say our average rating is 4.9 out of 5 and 100% of all attendees said they would recommend a friend to watch the film.
