Script Mixer A new monthly meet up for creatives in the North

Announcing a new series of informal mixers for meeting up and talking story.

Taking place each month in venues across the North, Script Mixers will bring together writers, directors and producers with the aim of talking story, developing ideas and nurturing new productions. These informal meet ups will provide local creatives with the chance to chat over a drink and form new filmmaking teams. And our BFI NETWORK team will be in attendance to keep things moving; we'll make introductions, help workshop ideas and keep you up to date with our latest funding and talent development opportunities.

The first series of Script Mixer events will take place in Newcastle and Leeds, running fromĀ 6pm - 8pm. There's no need to RSVP in advance, just come along on the day and say hello!
