If you show films in London or are hoping to, our Exhibitors' Breakfasts are for you. From cinemas, festivals and art centres to local authority Film Officers, film clubs and freelancers, the Breakfasts provide film exhibitors in London with the chance to meet each other. They're an opportunity to share sector news, opportunities, best practice and lessons learnt - developing ways of working together in new and exciting ways.
And our Breakfasts have helped build strong partnerships: venues have brought in new festivals, festivals have forged collaborations, and mentoring relationships have developed.
The next exhibitors' networking event will be the Forum + Reception: BFI London Film Festival edition.
It will take place at BFI Southbank on Friday 4 October, and will feature speakers from the wider BFI Film Audience Network. FAN members from across the UK are welcome to attend. The forum will be followed by a networking reception for FAN members.
