Please note: We are a team of volunteers committed to facilitating networking and development opportunities for film & TV artists and creatives in the Midlands. We are introducing a ‘Pay what you can’ policy to help us cover the necessary expenses to ensure we can operate every month. If you can spare a small financial contribution, it would go a long way towards this, but we are understanding of those who’re not in a position to contribute as it’s important to us that our events are accessible to all.
