A buffet lunch will be followed by short, introductory talks on the Games Tax Relief and the Creative Europe MEDIA sub-programme's Development:Video Games scheme. Following this, we will break out into small groups. Each group will have the opportunity to talk to representatives from the British Film Institute (Anna Mansi), Creative Europe Desk UK (Francesca Walker), HMRC, and Nomad Games/Alex Rose Games (Don Whiteford/Alex Rose).

Participants will be able to discuss their own projects, work through questions and examples, and learn from others.
