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 we 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.
PLEASE NOTE: Not turning up or cancelling last minute reduces the opportunities we are able to offer to regional talent and impacts on our ability to continue to provide these free events. Please help us by only booking if you definitely intend to come.
