For LFF delegates only

Pitcurehouse Central (Corner of Shaftesbury Avenue, Piccadilly Circus, London W1D 7DH)

Creative Europe Desk UK - England are proud to be supporting a session at this year's BFI London Film Festival

The event explores why more UK producers aren’t accessing the many benefits offered through co-production.

The session will look at the current co-production landscape and through case studies from producers with films in the Festival, will explore some of the motivations, benefits and challenges behind putting a co-production together, and how the UK could create a more attractive environment for co-production in a post-Brexit world.

Panelists include:

  • Ed Guiney, Producer, Head of Element Pictures (The Favourite, The Little Stranger, The Lobster, Room, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and Frank)
  • Nina Bisgaard, Producer and Executive Producer at Meta Film (Border)
  • Elizabeth Karlsen, producer (Colette, On Chesil Beach, Youth, Their Finest, Made in Dagenham), and co-founder of Number 9 Films.
  • Carlo Cresto-Dina, Producer (Happy As Lazzaro), and Founder of tempesta.

The event will be moderated by Marit van den Elshout, Head of IFFR PRO and managing Hubert Bals Fund, CineMart, Rotterdam Lab and Film Office.

Please note this session is only open to LFF industry delegates.
