Glasgow Film Festival Finance Forum

10:00-18:00 Thursday 23 February / 10:00-13:00 Friday 24 February

Venues around Glasgow

Glasgow Film Festival’s hub of industry activity will see projects pitched to UK and international funders and offers filmmakers the chance to meet with funders, distributors and sales agents and serves as an opportunity to learn more about the current funding landscape.

The 2017 GFF Finance forum consists of:

BellRock Script Pitch

Theatre Royal / Thursday 23 February 10:00-13:00

The BellRock Script Workshop was an inspirational programme giving screenwriters the opportunity to work with a team of established industry mentors to develop original screenplays during a series of structured residential workshops, exercises and discussions. Here we see the projects pitched and receiving feedback from industry experts. Ideal for writers looking to learn about the craft of writing and for producers looking for writers and scripts to work with.

Open Pitch

Theatre Royal / Thursday 23 February 14:00-17:00

The Open Pitch will see a series of pitches from filmmakers who have projects in development including from producers who have been a part of the Film Producer Accelerator with Sigma Films and Film City Futures. Projects will be pitched to panels of UK and international funders, distributors and sales agents.

Round Tables

Theatre Royal / Friday 24 February 11:30-13:30

The Round Tables are a great way for you to meet with the funders, distributors and sales agents we have at Glasgow Film Festival Industry Focus. Filmmakers can sign up for a 30 minute slot with any of the decision makers where you can discuss your projects.

Commissioning Creativity with University of Glasgow

GSA Reid Auditorium / Thursday 23 February 17:00-18:30

The Scottish screen industry is often compared to those in Scandinavia. In this panel, commissioners and directors of Public Screen Funding organisations in Scotland, Denmark and Sweden discuss the differences and similarities between screen funding in smaller northern European countries. 

Business of Film Talks

Theatre Royal / Thursday 23 - Friday 24 February

Across the two days of the Finance Forum we have a series of talks focusing on producing and financing. Day 1 is aimed at newer filmmakers looking to learn more about producing with Day 2 discussing major issues of funding in Scotland, a focus on production in Scandinavia and international coproduction and funding opportunities for women.
