Alongside London, the most important film festival in Great Britain. Large number of categories and many different awards. Accompanying program Sharing Stories: interesting panel discussions and workshops on the theme of co-financing in the areas of film, TV, marketing and sponsorship, script and script readings. Most of the participants are experienced financiers from the big TV companies. A good platform for up-and-coming talents. Professionally organized with personal touch.
