NETWORKED is a bi-monthly online networking event run by BFI NETWORK South West, which is open to all South West based filmmakers and crew.
For this special event, in partnership with Encounters Film Festival 2021, we will hear from our guest speakers – Bristol based production company Wildseed Studios – about their current slate of animated and live action projects for young adult audiences and how they can support new talent to develop features, series and shorts for platforms like Netflix.
After the talk you will be entered into a chat roulette system where you will be able to speed network in pairs for five minutes at a time and have opportunity to meet with other local filmmakers and the guest speakers.

"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
