Description

What are funders looking for and how do I stand out from the crowd?

Come and join our experts Keith Potter (Scottish Film Talent Network) and Alexzandra Jackson (Film Hub Midlands) at this roundtable discussing various ways to secure funding for your film.

Keith joined SFTN in May as the Talent Development Executive. Prior to this he worked as an Executive Producer at Catalyst Global Media in London, where he was across film and television projects for their production division and was also hired to creatively run their feature film investment slate. Previously he was a Project Manager at Screen Ireland, based in Dublin, where he was across features such as Room, Love & Friendship and The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Before moving to Ireland, Keith worked for Ffilm Cymru Wales in Cardiff, where he was Head of Production and Development. In this role he represented the fund on projects such as Submarine and Kelly + Victor. Keith started his film career in development, acting as Head of Development for Dan Films and working with talent such as Tom Rob Smith and Christopher Smith. In addition to Keith's work at SFTN, he is also developing projects with Scottish producer Stewart Mackinnon and directors Emer Reynolds, Adrian Shergold and Catherine Linstrum.
