Event description
Intensive & interactive series of live webinars teaching you how to finance and distribute an independent film.

About this Event

Through two intensive and interactive webinars Victoria Bavister will teach you exactly how she got her debut feature film COUNTY LINES financed (£480k), made and acquired by BFI distribution for UK cinema release.

Join her for a series of webinars as she discusses the journey from script to screen - detailing the pitfalls and obstacles she overcame and how she set up this truly independent production outside of the usual financial institutions.

Development & Financing (3rd November 19:30-21:30)

This webinar will look at importance of finding the right idea and building a strong team, how to realistically budget your project, the importance of knowing your market and creating a pitch document that grabs the right attention.

We will also look at funding options available - including the usual financial institutions, sales/distribution companies, SEIS, private equity, co-productions and tax credits.

Finally using COUNTY LINES as a case study Victoria will detail her journey from short film proof of concept through to securing finance and the journey to day 1 of principle photography.

Distribution & Festivals (10th November 19:30-21:30)

You’ve made a feature film, now how do you get it in front of an audience?

This webinar will look at how to get a sales/distribution company on board - exploring the steps and decisions that need to happen before the film is made and then once in the can, how to secure the deal.

We will also look at the importance of festivals and how to get your film seen by the right people, deciding on where to have your world premiere and then the continuing journey of the film.

Again using the case study of COUNTY LINES Victoria will detail the film’s specific journey, the stages she went through and many pitfalls she came across before it was acquired.
