1-2-1 Advice Sessions

During the festival we're offering film professionals interested in working with or in the UK a chance to get advice from the BFI Certification Unit and the British Film Commission.

The sessions are open to UK and international producers who feel they may need guidance on: co-producing with the UK; qualifying as a British film, high-end television production, animation, or video game to access tax relief; or making films in the UK including sourcing the UK crew, talent, VFX & post facilities, studios and locations.

Sessions last approximately 20 minutes and are available on Saturday 17 February and Sunday 18 February at the following times:

11.00, 11.30, 12.00, 12.30, 13.00, 13.30, 14.00 and 14.30

To book a place please email Nigel Cross at the UK Film Centre (ncross@filmexportuk.com) include the date, preferred time, your mobile telephone and email address. Please also include a brief description of your project and requirements.

In addition, for those unable to attend one of the above sessions we are offering a General Drop-in Session on Monday 19 February between 11.00 - 13.00. We are not taking bookings for this. Just turn up at the UK Film Centre between 11.00 and 13.00 on the 19 February and report to the Reception Desk.
