Event description

Description

Join Film Hub North for a free session providing cultural organisations with guidance on budgeting and financial management. Our next professional development event takes place at HOME on Wednesday, 4 September and is open to all Hub Members working in film exhibition.

Led by George Whalley, Director of Finance and Operations at HOME, the session will cover a range of topics such as managing revenue streams, VAT, staff costs and coordinating multiple budgets. The exact format of the event will be tailored to the experiences, situations and needs of our attendees, so when you sign up we’ll ask a few questions that will help us structure the day and ensure you get the most out of it.

After the initial session, organisations will have the chance to hold a half hour 1-2-1 meeting with George to unpack what we’ve discussed further and to ask any questions specific to their work.

The Film Hub North team will also be available for 1-2-1 meetings throughout the afternoon. We’re here to discuss exhibition projects both large and small, how the Hub can support your organisation, and any marketing queries you might have. 1-2-1 meetings will be allocated on a first come, first served basis - you can register your interest when reserving your place for the session.
