Sharpen your skills at Freelancer’s Fair

Join the film and TV community for a great-value industry day to debate, learn and make new contacts.

BECTU’s Writers Producers and Directors branch have crafted a great line-up for this year’s Freelancers’ Fair on Friday 19 May, at the Royal Institution in London. Running from 9am-6pm, it includes sessions on copyright, getting from script to screen, using small kit to film big, film funding and vlogging & blogging, all with expert contributors. And there’ll be debates on fake news and Brexit too, with added humour thanks to a session of Brexit Bingo called by actor and comedian Samantha Baines.

Workshops are in the mix as well, offering support to film-makers in a number of areas, and there’ll be a small but perfectly formed exhibition delivering advice on a range of key production and lifestyle issues. ARRI and Alias Hire will be joining forces to help visitors to get hands on with kit. Find the latest speaker line-up, programme and booking info here

BECTU members attend for free; non-members pay just £12.30.
