Finding Your Feet films London locations

Finding Your Feet

Comedy drama feature Finding Your Feet filmed in London locations to tell the story of a snobby retiree who must relocate to live with her sister on a housing estate.

Southwark’s Rodney Estate doubled for the impoverished part of the city where much of the story takes place.

“Having literally made the Rodney Estate its home for Imelda Staunton and Celie Imrie, the production also made a very kind donation to the Rodney Road Tenants and Residents Association to thank them,” says Karen Everett, director of FilmFixer, which manages film offices for multiple London boroughs, including Southwark. 

“The film was shot in March and November in 2016, with a very discreet cast and crew of around 35 usually.”

Finding Your Feet was directed by Richard Loncraine and also used facilities at Twickenham Studios and filmed on location in Rome.
