Tickets for this event have now sold out.
Film London has once again joined forces with BAFTA to present a seminar designed to guide emerging producers in the UK through the roles of traditional sales companies and distributors.
Breakthrough: A Guide to International Film Sales & Distribution is supported by Kodak and will take place at BAFTA on 30 January 2013. The event aims to boost both domestic distribution and the international export of British independent films.
After a sell-out event in 2012, Film London and BAFTA return for a second year with a panel of industry stalwarts to discuss the role of international sales companies, how film-makers can best utilise the festival circuit to form a global film festival strategy, and guidance on presenting projects to the international marketplace.
Speakers at the events will include Stephen Kelliher, Head of Sales and Marketing at Bankside Films and Chair of Film Export UK, Carey Fitzgerald, Managing Director of High Point Media Group, Natalie Brenner, EVP, International Sales at Ealing Metro International, Julia Short, Head of Acquisitions at the Works Film Group, Rebecca Hawkes, Managing Director of Schedule 2, and Mia Bays, producer and sales/distribution consultant.
Breakthrough: A Guide to... is presented by the organisers of the annual London UK Film Focus (LUFF), the UK's premier film export event. As part of LUFF, the Breakthrough strand offers emerging British film-makers a unique and vital platform to showcase their work to sales agents, international buyers and programmers of prominent international film festivals.
