Indielab Accelerator - deadline February
The Indielab Accelerator 2019 programme is open for submissions until 8 February.
The not-for-profit scheme, which was founded in 2015, helps small and mid-size independent production companies to develop and achieve scale.
The social enterprise supports small indies in the UK, while promoting diversity and opportunity across the nations and regions.
It runs from March-May each year and includes high-level briefings from more than 50 industry leaders along with masterclasses on all aspects of growth in today’s global markets.
The social enterprise is now developing a series of new strands and diversifications under the Indielab brand. In 2019 there will be a sharpened focus on investment readiness and a separate ‘pitching for investment’ event, which will be announced throughout the coming year.
As in previous years, Indielab Accelerator has pledged 50% of participants will be operating in the UK’s nations and regions, in line with its aim to help nurture sustainable production hubs outside the UK capital.
Applications are open to companies of all genres and from across the UK. Indielab Accelerator 2019 is once again supported by the Mayor of London’s office through Film London.
