About the Workshop:

We all acknowledge the value of creating relationships for a sustainable career in the industry, but networking, especially at international festivals, can be quite challenging for even the most talented and experienced professionals. How do you position yourself confidently, connect with ease and keep the conversation going? From introducing yourself to a stranger at the coffee bar, to cocktail pitching and presenting your project at 1:1 meetings, what do you really need to know - and do - to set yourself up for success?

In this dynamic interactive workshop we’ll look at what comes into play during different types of encounters and give tips and tools to help you start to build relationships that carry on beyond the festival. And you’ll have the opportunity to put it into practice right away!

Target Audience: Directors, Producers, Line Producers, Production Managers, Film Students, Screenwriters, Impact Producers
