The Producers’ Forum’s popular screening event Forum Bytes is expanding courtesy of Birmingham Film Festival into to a feature packed full day of tips, talks, guidance and screenings for creatives of all levels. This is a drop-in free day.
Join members of the film community at this monthly networking event. It’s free and all are welcomed. No need to register, just come along!
Tonight, meet our new CEO Alison Grade and get a chance to ask your questions about the Forum and its future.
*Please note that due to a recent takeover, our usual venue of Edmunds Brewhouse is now unable to hold our event. We have moved temporarily to the Cosy Club on Bennett's Hill*
Forum Bytes ‒ when Forum Members share their work on the large screen. All are welcomed but only Forum members’ work will be eligible for screening. (Good reason to join?)
This screening event is part of our regular networking so you can chat more about your work to interested parties. This is a great opportunity for members to share new and existing work. We are looking to screen only short pieces of work, including adverts, promos, trailers and music videos. If you have a project that is over ten minutes, a documentary or a feature film, then this is also a great chance to screen a trailer or clip from longer formatted work of any genre.
So show us your shorts and show us what you’re currently working on. Any genre including promos, adverts and well, anything you can throw at us.
The event is compered by Forum board member and co-founder Mark Pressdee. Mark has hosted and compered short film nights for years in the region, including collaborating on past events such as Exploding Cinema for Birmingham International Film Festival, Film First, Fix Films, Bizarro TV and Local Shorts Film Club. So we are hoping for a fun but informal night with a chance for Q&As about your work. It is also an opportunity for you to get feedback on a work in progress.
Networking from 7:00pm and screening starts promptly at 7:30pm.
