WMD has already courted controversy over its representation of the British intelligence services during the Weapons of Mass Destruction scandal.

A fictional account based on real events and filmed entirely on covert surveillance and CCTV cameras, WMD pieces together the story of Alex, an ordinary MI6 desk officer, who discovers deliberate flaws in the evidence being gathered to invade Iraq.

In an attempt to expose the truth Alex finds himself drawn into a shadowy and dangerous world. Will he have the courage to expose the truth? Would you...?

WMD paints a chilling portrait of how democratically elected leaders, when left unchecked, can use their power to change the global landscape forever.

WMD has recently been nominated for this year's BIFA awards and was recently nominated for Best UK Feature Debut at The East End Film Festival. It was also part of the official selection at The Notting Hill Film Festival, and is still the first narrative feature film worldwide to tackle the controversy.

WMD is the debut feature of writer/director David Holroyd who was short-listed for the first Film London Microwave award. The film is produced by Christine Hartland and Holroyd, who both take part in tonight's Q&A panel discussion.

Written after extensive research and conversations with individuals involved in the actual Weapons of Mass Destruction controversy, and in various intelligence services, making the film even entailed Holroyd's small crew being detained by detectives in Rome accused of working for MI6.

WMD was filmed in London, Rome, Berlin and Washington DC, often using guerrilla techniques to shoot in airports, on planes and in other busy public places.

WMD also shows at Shortwave 7pm on Friday 16 October Saturday 17 October and Sunday 18 October.
