Our Online Filmmaker Roundtables are back, giving local writers, directors and producers another chance to connect with our Talent Development Team remotely. Our next sessions take place on Wednesday, 19 August - the first runs from 11:00 - 12:00 and the second from 14:00 - 15:00.
Each Roundtable is hosted by one of the Hub's BFI NETWORK Talent Executives and involves up to 10 local filmmakers. The sessions are informal, introductory events primarily for creatives who have not yet had a 1-2-1 meeting with our Talent Development Team. They're a chance to introduce yourself to our team and find out about the film funding and training opportunities available through BFI NETWORK. You'll also get to meet some of the region's filmmakers - Filmmaker Roundtables provide a space for Northern creatives to discuss their work and ongoing projects, and meet future collaborators.
