Filmmakers Meet Up / Nov 2019

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!

We’ll be joined by two directors who will share their experience of making their first feature film. The event will be chaired by Michelle Stein, producer at Escape Films.

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.

This event will be BSL interpreted.
