Think-Shoot-Distribute is the 56th BFI London Film Festival’s feature film talent and project development scheme.
The 56th BFI London Film Festival, supported by Creative Skillset, Adobe, Creative England, Film London and The Hospital Club is looking for 25 talented and experienced people seeking to develop their feature film career, to take part in Think-Shoot-Distribute 2012.
TSD will select and help 25 talented and experienced people with a feature film project (fiction or documentary), who are working in shorts, TV, documentaries, theatre, digital media, games, arts or commercials, to develop their career, their skills, their industry knowledge, their contacts and their project.
“The most incisive and relevant training I’ve experienced… Intensive, inspiring and highly valuable. Very well chaired, brilliantly curated and produced”
“Exhausting in the best possible way! Jam packed with lots of valuable information and great contacts I am looking forward to developing.”
“Very intensive with loads of information and tools to progress in the film industry. I feel immersed in the industry and invigorated.”
“A snapshot of life at the coalface of the film business”
