New Opportunity To Guide Up And Coming British Producers

A new opportunity has emerged for up and coming British producers as two film agencies and BAFTA join forces to guide producers through the role of sales companies and distributors.
Film London and associated partners Northern Film and Media have teamed up with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) to deliver two events titled: Breakthrough: A Guide to International Film Sales & Distribution, in London and Newcastle.
The events are aimed at boosting both domestic distribution and the international export of British independent films.
Supported by Kodak and Creative England the event comes from the organisers of the annual London UK Film Focus (LUFF), the UK's premier film export event.
It is understood that the event’s focus will range from acquisitions and distribution, festivals and markets, the role of delivery agents as well as a session where sales companies pitch their service to producers so they better understand the sales agent's role in the value chain.
Speakers at the events will include Stephen Kelliher, Head of Sales and Marketing at Bankside Films and Chair of Film Export UK, Carey Fitzgerald, Managing Director of High Point Media Group, Natalie Brenner, EVP, International Sales at Ealing Metro International, Julia Short, Head of Acquisitions at the Works Film Group, Rebecca Hawkes, Managing Director of Schedule 2, Nicola Kettlewood, Edinburgh Film Festival, and Mia Bays, producer and Sales/Distribution Consultant.
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission
Said: "It’s important to support film-makers through the complexities of exhibition and distribution".
In London, the event, will take place at BAFTA on Tuesday 24 January 2012, in Newcastle it will run at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts on Tuesday 31 January 2012. Early bird tickets available now at: Film London
