This workshop is part of Beyond Boundaries 360, a FREE skills development programme aimed at individuals based in the South West who feel under-represented in the cinema sector. Delivered over 6 months Beyond Boundaries 360 is designed to help you develop your practice as a film curator, programmer or event producer, giving you the skills and confidence to plan and deliver public-facing film events. Bursaries are available to help with travel and child care costs.
In the second workshop of the series, the focus will be on Event Producing and the practical steps required to make your film event ideas a reality.
