Inside Pictures is an intensive film business training and leadership skills development programme created by Qwerty Films and presented by the National Film & Television School. The programme is for film industry executives from all disciplines (development, production, sales, distribution, marketing, finance, legal and business affairs) and is designed to develop the practical knowledge, skills and high level contacts needed to lead successful businesses.
- Module 1 takes you through each stage of the film value chain from a European film industry perspective, including development, financing and packaging to production, marketing, sales, distribution and home entertainment. You will hear first hand from top executives working in all these areas.
- Module 2 takes you to the heart of the US film industry, and covers both the studio and independent system. You will hear from experienced execs from across the value chain and experience at first hand the strategic and business-like approach of professionals working in Hollywood.
- Module 3 is focused on business development and personal growth. During the week you will hear case studies from executives who have built, grown and sold successful film businesses. Some of the module is dedicated to professional development, with sessions on conflict management, negotiation and presentation skills.
- Module 4 is a two-day event during which you will pitch the project you have been working on throughout the programme, to a panel of senior European film executives. The module culminates in the Graduation Reception, where you will be awarded a certificate for successful completion of the IP Programme.
Corinne Ranaraja, Programme Director, Operations of Inside Pictures, said:
"Inside Pictures is a unique and essential film business development programme that wouldn't be possible without the support of Creative Europe, to whom we are grateful for recognising the value of ongoing learning, and for giving this year's group the opportunity to grow their business and contribute to the wider industry."
