FilmWorks 2012 Participants Announced
Whittled down from over 150 applications, the organisers of Filmworks have announced that this year’s workshop series will have 48 participants.
Supported by National Lottery funding, managed by Watershed in Bristol and co-produced by ShowroomWorkstation in Sheffield and Broadway in Nottingham, FilmWorks connects promising British filmmakers with prominent figures in the industry to take part in workshops to develop their skills. The Bristol-based participants will be under the tutelage of Julie Lockhart, producer of The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists; the Sheffield collective will be overseen by Colin Pons (Hush, The Acid House, Fanny and Elvis); and Nottingam has Alastair Clark (London to Brighton, Crying with Laughter, A Man’s Story). The participants will now begin a series of practice-oriented workshops, one-on-one mentoring sessions, masterclasses and networking events for a 360 degree view of the creative, business and technical aspects of the international film industry – from development to exhibition.
