Microwave: exploring low budget film-making, on Tuesday 14 February at 14.00 will include guests Richard Jobson (16 Years of Alcohol), The Manetti Brothers (Plan 17) and Julian Richards (The Last Horror Movie).
Six young producers participating in Film London’s Passport Programme will also be in Berlin to meet international sales agents and pitch their projects. Running since October 2005, the Passport Programme supports producers to take projects from development to the big screen. The producers in Berlin are: Anne Beresford, Camilla Bray, Martin Carr, Antoinette O’Grady, Alex Lewis and Peter La Terriere.
London-shot short Summer is also screening as part of the Official Panaroma section, with support from the Film London Film-makers’ Festival Fund.
