Description

How do I create an effective festival strategy and extend the life of my film beyond festivals?

Come and join our experts Alice Cabanas (Film Hub South West) and Jo Cadoret (Film London) at this roundtable to discuss festivals and distribution.

Alice is the BFI NETWORK Talent Executive for the South West, based at Watershed in Bristol. She joined BFI NETWORK from British Council’s Film Team, where she has was the Film Programme Manager, managing the short film and new talent support offer, including the Travel Grant scheme and an annual calendar of events for new and emerging UK filmmakers. Working closely with international programmers and buyers, Alice promoted UK short films across the globe. Alongside working with UK filmmakers, Alice looked after global exhibition projects, including running the EU Film Festival offer internationally. Prior to her role at British Council Alice was co-director of Encounters Festival, based in Bristol. Alice headed up communications, strategy and development for the Festival, and ran several year-round training and development initiatives for new and emerging filmmakers. Alice has also been a mentor for several new talent schemes within the creative sector including Guiding Lights and Re:Present.

Jo is a BFI NETWORK Talent Exec for the London region. He has managed the delivery of Film London’s award-winning short film schemes London Calling and London Calling Plus, and other short film-related projects since 2003. In that time he has developed and delivered 100s of groundbreaking and internationally award-winning shorts, including four BAFTA nominees - most recently Wren Boys - and the BAFTA-winning I Do Air.
