Description

How much development does a short film need?

Come and join our experts Amy O'Hara (Film Hub North) and Alice Whittemore (Ffilm Cymru Wales) at this roundtable to discuss the most effective, thorough, and productive ways of developing your short film.

Amy has worked in film marketing, distribution and production for over 5 years, mostly recently working in the UK Marketing team at newly developed studio STX Entertainment. She started in film as Production Assistant on Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets, leading into her role at Film4 as assistant to the Distribution & Marketing team. At Film4 Amy worked across numerous award-winning and prestigious titles including 20,000 Days On Earth, The Double, Hyena, ’71, The Lobster and 12 Years A Slave. Amy moved to STX at its commencement to help establish the UK and international office for the studio when it first opened in 2017. She assisted in establishing the direct distribution of the company in the UK & Ireland and has subsequently worked across all the studio’s UK campaigns including Wind River and American Animals, taking a lead on social and digital strategy and activations.

Alice joined Ffilm Cymru Wales in September 2018 as BFI NETWORK Wales Manager, overseeing funding support for new and emerging filmmakers in the nation. Prior to Ffilm Cymru, Alice spent six years in London working in film exhibition and talent development, including Film London, where she contributed to numerous iterations of their flagship training initiatives including the Microwave feature scheme and London Calling shorts. She is also an independent producer and script reader, and has a Diploma in Script Development from the NFTS.
