Filmmaker Roundtable

Join our team and our partners at Doc Society for an informal Filmmaker Roundtable. This event is an opportunity to meet our team, find out more about the funding and career development support we provide, and connect with fellow filmmakers. 

We are excited that director Joe Simmons and producer Lewis Coates (the creative team behind BFI NETWORK funded short Vestige) will also be at the roundtable. 

Hosted by Ben Taylor (Talent Executive, Film Hub North) and Fiona Fletcher (Support Programme Manager, Doc Society), strictly limited to 20 places.
