Are you looking to connect with BFI NETWORK South West? One-to-one meetings are 30-minute sessions for South West-based filmmakers and creatives who are interested in the opportunities, funding, training, and networking on offer with BFI NETWORK South West.
Our south west Talent Executives are interested in meeting regional talent. The 1:1 format is ideal for people who have specific questions about our offer that are not included in the BFI NETWORK funding guidelines or on our FAQs (‘Frequently Asked Questions’) page.
In order to divide our time fairly and meet as many of you as possible, these 1:1 meetings are for those who haven’t yet connected with the BFI NETWORK South West team and would like to introduce themselves, and ask any questions they might have around the Short Film and Early Development Funds.
As we’re such a small team the Talent Executives don’t have the capacity to read scripts, treatments or pitch docs and offer script development advice. These meetings are a way for the team to get to know talent in our region – they are not intended to be a careers advice or mentoring session. What the Talent Execs can help with is:
All 1:1 meetings are kept strictly to 30 minutes and can be hosted either via Zoom (video call, with live captioning if needed) or via phone.
If you have any additional access requirements please inform us of this at the point of sign up.
PLEASE NOTE: If there no slots available keep an eye on our social media and newsletter for updates.
BFI NETWORK South West Talent Executive Nadia Attia has read countless scripts for Channel 4, BBC, BFI, Studiocanal and more, and as an ex-filmmaker herself she’s been on the flipside of applying for funding. She took some time out to share her learnings with you, to help your application stand out and prepare you for the next round of funding.
