The Producer's Forum

Reporting back from the Producer's Forum in Wales

Earlier this month Creative Europe Desk UK – Wales took part in the Producers Forum in Cardiff. Running parallel with the Iris Film Festival, the Producers Forum is an annual networking and information day for international producers which, this year, was attended by over 150 industry professionals.

Judy Wasdell from Creative Europe Desk UK – Wales hosted a breakout session on the producer support schemes available through Creative Europe's MEDIA sub-programme. She also participated in a Creative Europe-sponsored panel session: Funding – the faces behind the names with the cash! alongside representatives from Ffilm Cymru Wales, the British Film Institute, Pinewood Studios and Capital Law. The panel was well-attended with an audience of 60 and a lively discussion.
