Press & Industry

Our Industry Programme is at the heart of the festival, creating a bustling hub of activity during the festival dates and continuing all year round. This is where we forge connections, share fresh new thinking and nurture the filmmakers of tomorrow.

In this challenging year for the film sector, opportunities to network, develop skills and connect filmmakers with new opportunities are more vital than ever. Our new programme of free digital events, specially curated for emerging filmmakers, allows you to connect with industry experts and peers from your own home. The programme has two strands:

Industry Connects

Running throughout the year, our Industry Connects programme for the remainder of 2020 provides a series of digital opportunities for both emerging and established filmmakers in the form of webinars, live streamed discussions and curated digital content. 

Short Circuit

Short Circuit is a talent development initiative for new and emerging filmmakers in Scotland, funded by Screen Scotland and BFI NETWORK and delivered by Film City Futures and Glasgow Film. Short Circuit's digital events programme is aimed at supporting new and emerging filmmakers. Free webinars with leading film talent will cover everything from scriptwriting for beginners to deciding on your film festival strategy, alongside monthly networking events and film screenings.
