Before Coronavirus, Film London Labs was a regular series of half-day events at various venues in London, covering everything from writing and production to breaking into TV and the world of interactive. That was fun, but in spring 2020 everything changed, and like many others, we moved our programme online.

However, with the move into the virtual space, Film London Labs evolved. We went deeper.

Our Labs are no longer single-session events, but longer, richer, and more community driven. We’re leaning into everyone being at home to deliver the best possible tutors, and some seriously brilliant guest speakers, to keep everyone inspired and engaged, whatever is going on in the headlines. In difficult times, people need entertainment and distraction more than ever, and we’re here to help our creative community stay together and deliver its best work.
