2012 BAFTA Filmmakers Market
Saturday 13 July 2013
BAFTA have teamed up with Sargent-Disc to bring back their celebrated Filmmaker’s Market - a packed day of masterclasses, screenings and advice sessions to help filmmakers improve creative and business skills as they move towards making their first feature, and progress in the industry.
Taking over the whole of BAFTA HQ the Market covers a range of key issues from tax breaks in film finance to crowdfunding, and from a directors’ masterclass to a summit on how best to develop film talent. There is small group access to experts and topics such as European funding, story development and film journalism, and some terrific short films screening all day in the Run Run Shaw Theatre courtesy of some quality film fests and film schools partners. As a new offering, you can also book a one-to-one speed surgery on optimising your online presence or using library music well, or even pitch a feature film idea.
The entire industry seems to be participating including British Council itself, alongside Sargent-Disc, Advance Films, BFI Film Fund, Creative England, Directors UK, Film4, Film London, Harbottle & Lewis, Little White Lies, London Film Academy, London Film School, London Short Film Festival, Media Desk UK, NFTS, Production Guild,Sara Putt Associates, Sayle Screen, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Shooting People, Thinksync, and Underwire Film Festival.
Cap it all off with a drink and a chance to network courtesy of Vimeo and with support from BAFTA partners Grolsch.
All sessions cost £6, with screenings in the Run Run Shaw Theatre and the Networking drink free to any ticket holder.
