Film London at Berlinale 2019
Date posted: 19.02.2019
It's been a busy time at the 69th edition of the Berlin Film Festival for Film London, as we took to the festival and the European Film Market to fly the flag for the UK film industry, in a number of different ways.
Over at the UK Film Centre, we provided a great space to have meetings with our existing and new international partners, international producers, sales companies and international buyers to talk about PFM and London Screenings as well as shooting in London.
From our Talent Development and Production (TDP) team, Angeli Mcfarlane, Development Producer at Film London, was invited by Berlinale Talents to be part of the Script Station as a mentor. Her role was to support the development of two feature films by writer/directors from Taiwan and Israel; and on the final day of the Talents Lab, all of the projects were presented to an industry audience. Additionally, Jordan McGarry took part in Blockchain in Action, a session curated by FilmChain as part of the EFM Horizon strand on the Saturday morning. Maria Tanjala and Irina Albita from FilmChain interviewed her on stage about her background and what our TDP team are working on with Microwave 3, why they think blockchain is interesting and what they're hoping to achieve with it.
We also took part in a workshop in which several blockchain entertainment start-ups pitched their products and received feedback. These included White Rabbit, and MinersInc.
The launch date for Microwave 3 is yet to be confirmed, but for updates, make sure to follow Film London on Twitter, or subscribe to our production newsletter.
Microwave 3 will see us relaunch our flagship scheme later this year, deploying new technology to make the scheme as progressive as possible and bring every element of our and our filmmakers' process into the 21st century.
