North West Filmmakers at FACT

Monday 18 September / 6pm / The Box / £3, booking required


Join us in The Box for the North-West Filmmakers' meet up, for an event full of film industry professionals from across the North West.


There'll be a range of guest speakers, an interactive Q&A session, ample time for networking, and - perhaps most importantly - the possibility to bring any beverage you want from the Picturehouse bar. Whether you're a veteran or a beginner, there's something to learn here for your career.


There will also be an opportunity to show some of your work on the cinema screen. Please contact if you're interested in this for more details.


Speakers include:

Monica Rodriguez - Organiser, Scalarama. Monica is from Scalarama - a national festival of film running all through September. She'll have lots of tips about event organisation and promotion.


Glenn Maguire - Creative Director, SparkleVFX. From local VFX house 'SparkleVFX' comes Glenn, who'll tell you all about the VFX workflow - how to plan your shots, budgetary and scheduling considerations, as well as the important creative work that goes into making a digital composite work.


Harry Sheriff & Simon Conroy - independent filmmakers. Harry will be premiering the first episode of his Creative England-funded webseries Early Days, as well as giving an insight into its making with a special Q&A. Joining Harry is Simon Conroy, the editor of the webseries and presenter of the Cinechill podcast.
