Thanet flat needed as set for feature film being shot on isle in March

Filming in Thanet

One more Thanet property is needed as a set for a BFI feature film being shot in Thanet this year.

True Things About Me is an adaptation of Deborah Kay Davies’ book of the same name, which follows a young woman living on the fringes of society who becomes entangled with a stranger.

The film will star Ruth Wilson as the woman called Kate in the film adaptation. She will also produce alongside Jude Law, The Bureau and BBC Films. It will be directed by  Harry Wootliff. Jude Law will not appear in the film.

Filming is scheduled to start in Thanet on March 16 and will run for five weeks. The crew’s main base will be in Broadstairs.

Location manager Ben Lee made a call out for several locations last month.

Now he is reissuing the appeal for just one of the properties with a slight change to the brief. It is a paid opportunity.

The property needed is for Kate’s flat with up to one week’s filming.


Large 2 bedroom flat situated close to Margate / Ramsgate / Broadstairs town centre. Needs to feel as if it is in the heart of the town.

Shabby – nothing too white and well finished. Should feel lived in.

Large living area with big windows – Can be a living / kitchen space too.

One of the bedrooms to also be spacious, second doesn’t need to be.

Bathrooms must have a bath.

Ideally the flat should have decent access for camera kit.
