UK film and TV finance forum
Screen International, in partnership with sister publication Broadcast, is launching its first Finance Forum.
The event will give attendees a detailed analysis of the challenges and opportunities in the fast-changing landscape of film and high-end TV finance in the UK.
The forum will take place at Everyman Broadgate in London on 5 December 2019.
It will feature high-profile speakers and panels sharing insight on topics such as:
• How to attract private financing to UK film and high-end TV projects
• How the new EIS rules and tax changes can work for you
• How the independent sector can work with streamers
• Tax credits and incentives
The forum will also feature an industry keynote speaker (TBA) and a producers panel featuring some of the UK’s most successful producers discussing where they see the opportunities and challenges ahead.
The Screen International Finance Forum is sponsored by Malta Film Commission, Malta Film Studios and Red Rock Entertainment. Everyman is the venue partner.
