The BFI NETWORK exists to nurture and support new filmmaking talent in every region of the UK. Matimba will be talking about the BFI’s opportunities for North East filmmakers including funding for short film, talent development programmes and iFeatures. Matimba will be discussing what BFI NETWORK looks for when commissioning and what the process is for submission –essential information for early career filmmakers interested in getting funding for their first short or feature film ideas. The talk will be followed by a Q&A.
