Our next online members meet up comes in just before cinemas re-open on Monday 17th May. This weeks session will be a catch-up on recent celebrations, concerns, and challenges, as well as a chance to find out more about Film Hub South West funding that is currently available.
We would like to hear more from members working at festivals and other organisations who do not operate at a venue on their upcoming plans and practices, ahead of welcoming audiences back.
Do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to share your work, or discuss any topics. Please email us at email@example.com if you would like to present, or to let us know what else you would like from our fortnightly meet ups.
At our last meet up Claire Horrocks, Film Programmer at Exeter Phoenix, Jess Brewster, Director of The Roses Theatre and Mark Cosgrove, Cinema Curator at Watershed, discussed their plans. Our members can catch up with this on our Basecamp.
We invite you to join us and share questions and successes with the group, supporting one another as we prepare to welcome audiences back in the South West soon.
"The first professional trip out of Bristol since March last year was to London to catch up on films. I have been eager to re-engage with festivals; so decided London Film Festival would be my first tentative re-emerging steps."
Films, stories and music from more than a dozen countries and the premiere of its own first self-made film will be on offer when Afrika Eye - the South West’s biggest festival of African cinema and culture – returns to venues across Bristol and beyond from November 8th to 16th.
We invite all our Members to join our 2021 Annual Members Forum. We want to hear what is and isn’t working, explore your ideas for the future of the Hub and wider BFI Film Audience Network
