Calling UK documentary filmmakers...

BFI Doc Society Local: East

In the second virtual edition of our BFI Doc Society regional event series (delivered as part of BFI NETWORK), we look forward to conversations with UK doc makers about the issues affecting them in a Covid-present landscape. This day-long event explores the ever-evolving situation for documentary production, commissioning (including the BFI Doc Society Fund) and releasing - what are the opportunities? How do we use our natural aptitude as doc-makers to engage new and nimble digital strategies? How do we keep connected as a sector? Hear creative case studies on what makes a great funding application, the magical creative editing process on feature docs and have a chat with the BFI Doc Society team and other sector experts.

Filmmaker 1-2-1 session
During the event there will be an opportunity to register for a 15 minute 1-2-1 session with our BFI Doc Society team and other sector experts - these 1-2-1 sessions will take place on Wednesday 25 November between 16:30-18:00 [GMT].

How do I participate?
Registration is free and you can sign up for the day We invite you into a shared, participatory virtual space together. This means you can ask questions and comment ‘in person’ and we encourage cameras on and networking with one another in the chat! Let’s connect.

Who is this event for?
This free convening is designed to help connect non-fiction filmmakers across the UK, especially those working in the regions and nations. Our “Local” focus for this edition will explore opportunities, networks and filmmakers working in the East of England. However, the doors are open to filmmakers from all corners of the UK, of all levels of experience and from all communities. So feel free to register and connect with your fellow documentary filmmakers.
