Filmmakers Meet Up / Feb 2020

Join our Filmmakers Meet Up aimed at emerging film writers, directors and producers, organised in conjunction with BFI NETWORK/Film Hub North. We will kick off the evening with a 30-minute panel discussion with industry guests and practitioners, followed by friendly, informal networking with a drink. Don’t worry if you’re usually stuck for conversation at events, we’re pretty sure our guests will have provided plenty of food for thought!

  • Panel theme for this meet up
    Producer Michelle Stein (Escape Films) will be in conversation with Alice Ramsey, Development Producer at BBC Writersroom and Natasha Salter, writer/direct agent and founding partner of the Salt Partnership.  The panel will be discussing how they identify talent, what they find broadcasters and funders are currently looking for and how talent can get noticed.

Also present, should you want a chat, will be Amy O’Hara, Talent Executive at BFI NETWORK/Film Hub North and Isabelle Croissant, Talent Development Programme Manager at HOME.
