Youth Day 2018

Sign up now for an event-packed day at the prestigious BFI SouthBank.

Future Film Labs (BFI), the Into Film Festival are joining us to bring together film industry professionals to advise on making documentaries and films, especially for charities. You, the audience, will select the Best Short Film of the Festival and also watch - or even enter - the exciting #tweetapitch competition which will award a £500 bursary to make a film to be screened at the Young Film Makers Day at the BFI in 2019.

The wrap up with free networking drinks will feature drop-in scripting, casting, funding and career surgeries with our partners Euroscript, Backstage, Livetree and Hiive.
