Creative England hosts Film Industry Networking Evening

Hertfordshire ProConnect Networking Evening: Navigating the Film Festival Circuit on 11th April

Creative England is hosting another of its popular Hertfordshire ProConnect crew networking evenings at Elstree Studios on Wednesday 11th April, 18:00.

The film industry networking event comes at a poignant time for Hertfordshire, where the Film, TV, video, radio and photography creative sector has been named the region’s fastest growing by number of businesses in Nesta’s Creative Nation report[1].

This is an essential networking opportunity for those working in the film industry in Hertfordshire where they can gain important advice and strategy from Festival Formula’s Founder and CEO Katie McCullough and Submissions Coordinator & Festival Liaison Manager Ian Bignell, who have made a career around strategising film festival submissions to great success.

Hertfordshire ProConnect is an ERDF backed programme of support for sole traders and SME’s working in or in the supply chain to the film and TV industry, as well as new market entrants to ensure they are well placed to start their own business. The programme will deliver a series of workshops, networking evenings, one-to-one interactions and small business grants, leading to economic growth for programme beneficiaries.

The event will provide an opportunity to meet and mingle with people from across the filming industry from Hertfordshire and beyond, whilst learning the tricks of the trade to sell your film into the festival circuit.
