Filmmakers Meet Up: where are all my future collaborators?

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? After a long time working in silos, it sounds like the filmmaking community is hungry to meet in person again. But where do you meet other people who might want to collaborate on projects? 

Join us at HOME for our first social of 2022 where you can meet other members of the filmmaking community and reconnect with old friends and collaborators.  

This meet up is open to anybody involved in filmmaking of all genres, in whatever capacity. Please note this is for people over 18 only. 

For the first of our meet ups, we’ll also invite representatives from events or networks in the region where you might find your next collaborators, including Bolton Film Festival, Indieflicks, Screenwriters Meet Up, Manchester Animation Festival and more.. 

If you feel a bit rusty when it comes to interacting in person don’t worry, there will be no Q&A or anything formal, and we’ll be on hand if you want to be introduced to people or just want someone to chat to. 

To register for the event, please fill in an expression of interest below and we’ll get in touch the week before to confirm your place.  

As this is a free event with limited capacity, we ask for an expression of interest so that we can check you are still coming nearer the time and give your space to someone else if you are busy.  We ask for all the optional details so we can help people on the day if they want to meet specific people.

  • Max. file size: 128 MB.
  • We may do a little focused talk at the start of the event to get disucssion going. If there are any theme you would like to be discussed, or guests you'd think would be great to be there (wether a specific person, an organisation or a "type of guest", let us know)
