BFI Film Academy Labs | Why Film Festivals Are Important For Your Filmmaking Career

In this special Lab, BFI Film Academy hosted the event in collaboration with Film Hub South East sponsored by The National Lottery.

We hear from BFI Film Academy Festival & Events Manager, Aleks Dimitrijevic, and filmmaker Will Wightman. This session explores the benefits of film festivals in offering platforms for aspiring filmmakers to present their creative ideas, network with industry professionals, and find collaborators for future projects.

Will and Aleks are in conversation with Abby Pollock, Young Film Programmer (YFP) and Youth Jury Lead at the Cambridge Film Festival.
