The future for UK Film

December 2021

Price: £95 PLUS VAT

This conference will look at how to tackle the potential challenges that lie ahead for the film industry in the UK. Delegates will evaluate the current state of play as well as priorities for sector recovery, future financing models, and addressing skills deficits.

Further sessions consider the wider challenge of realising the international potential of the UK’s film sector as well as further opportunities for growth and innovation, driving competition, and securing UK film’s position in a global economy.

It will also be a timely opportunity to consider how the sector is moving forward from the impact of the pandemic and what could learned for the future from strategies designed to help recovery - such as the Film & TV Production restart scheme and wider Government initiatives for cultural recovery, alongside measures outlined by the UK Cinema Association and the BFI.

We are pleased to be able to include keynote contributions from: Ben Roberts, Chief Executive Officer, British Film Institute; and Julie Baines, Founder, Dan Films; and Co-Chair, Film Producers Group, PACT.

We also welcome contributions from speakers including: Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive, Film London; and Chief Executive Officer, British Film Commission; and Rupert Daniels, Director, Creative, Lifestyle and Learning, Department for International Trade.

The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from BEIS; the DCMS; DIT; HMRC; and Ofcom - as well as parliamentary pass-holders from both Houses of Parliament.
