Seminars
Visitors have the choice of a morning or afternoon session on file-based acquisition presented by the Televisual Roadshow; Nicola Lees, author of Greenlit: Developing Factual and Reality Ideas from Concept to Pitch, will offer her expert take on how to prepare and deliver that winning pitch.

At the 2009 event one visitor laid down a challenge to the WPDs branch. Could they provide a seminar under the title 50 Ways to Get Funding Before You Die!? Well the branch has delivered: Steve Hewlett from Radio 4’sThe Media Show will be joined by Christo Hird (End of the Line) and Chris Atkins (Starsuckers) to debate the life blood of every film-maker: finance.

“In truth, we may not have found 50 solutions to the problem, but this session is certain to shed light on the issue,” commented Marc Sigsworth, programme maker and one of the session producers. 

Another highlight of the day will be the session titled Ethical Film-making Explored where the results of the BECTU/DV Talent Short Film Competition will be announced. More details about the competition here.

Three finalists will have their work screened and will join the audience in a discussion about approaches to film-making led by a high profile panel. The session and the related competition have been organised by documentary film-maker, Benetta Adamson. The deadline for entries to the competition is Friday 4 June.
