Industry Talent Day for Midlands Creatives – August 22nd

By July 25, 2019Uncategorized

On Thursday 22 August, BFI NETWORK will be hosting a free industry day for talent from the Midlands region.

About the Industry Day

In the morning the British Council Film Team are leading a session for writers, directors and producers, providing a chance to hear more about British Council’s Travel Grant Scheme, which has recently been further developed to help filmmakers travel to international labs, as well as international short film festivals. Come along and hear from a filmmaker from our region who has travelled internationally with the support of the scheme, and meet some of the British Council’s Film Team.

Following a networking lunch BFI NETWORK will be joined by the BFI Young Audience Content Fund team who will give some more information about the new £57 million scheme. The fund has been set up to stimulate the provision of public service-original UK content for 0-18 year olds, and will be a positive injection of investment to open new avenues for creators of original content and bring new voices to the market.

Event details:

Thu, 22 August 2019, 11:00 – 17:00 BST

Phoenix Cinema, 4 Midland Street, Leicester, LE1 1TG

PLEASE NOTE: Not turning up or cancelling last minute reduces the opportunities BFI NETWORK is able to offer to regional talent and impacts on their ability to continue to provide these free events. Please only book if you definitely intend to come.
