Event description

Description

You've got the skills, the script and the squad all in hand, but getting hold of that production budget is like searching for the holy grail.

How will you realistically fund your feature?

This event is a chance to find out about the various ways of accessing capital. Whether it's sourcing private finance, utilising crowd funding platforms or applying to production funds, you will hear real case studies from professionals working across the industry and take away practical advice on how to get your film from page to screen.

Our special guest speaker is producer, Andy Brunskill from SUMS Film & Media. His latest film, Lilting starring Ben Whishaw, opened Sundance 2014 and won Best Cinematography. He also has an impressive suite of projects currently on the slate working with the likes of Mark Gatiss (Sherlock), Ol Parker (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Andrew Macdonald (Trainspotting, Ex Machina).

Throughout the night we'll also be hearing from Judith Chan, a Manchester-based producer who has just funded her latest short starring Brian Blessed through Kickstarter, along with Creative England's own Kate O'Hara, who has worked on the last three rounds of iFeatures.

Meet fellow filmmakers, enjoy some drinks and make a great start to 2018!

This event is part of Creative England's Manchester ProConnect programme, and is fully funded by ERDF.
