Following the success of its 2016 edition, the BSC Expo is back, and is bigger than ever, at Battersea Evolution, Battersea Park, London (3-4 February 2017).
Created by the British Society Of Cinematographers, the annual kit-fest is the UK’s leading event for film and television production – delivering the nation’s premier showcase for all manner of new and innovative products and services, plus informative panel discussions and technical presentations.
The BSC Expo offers a highly-sociable networking opportunity too, providing a great opportunity to meet with friends and colleagues. And, admission is absolutely free! All under one roof, in the heart of London, you can check out the very latest lens, camera and lighting equipment, on-set tech, grip and support gear, location and production services, along with post production, VFX and sound technology – from more exhibitors, more brands, more manufacturers and more suppliers than ever, from right around the world.
Added to this, the BSC Expo is hosting a free two-day seminar programme. Leading global cinematographers and technology specialists will take the stage to discuss and present the very latest issues and trends in cinematography.
