Join us for a conversation as Natalie Chan speaks to Allan Wilson about how he supports theatre makers/filmmakers at the early stages of their career

3 November 2020

Over 4 days from 10 to 13 November (Tuesday to Friday) join us over lunch where we'll be bringing you the latest in our BFI NETWORK Live webinar series. Producer Natalie Chan and other guests will be chatting to you about the ins and outs of fundraising for your short film. This is particularly focused on applying to different smaller grant schemes as well as chatting to people on the other side of the table, for filmmakers and artists to understand how to begin a relationship and potential ways to make your own work without breaking the bank.

On Wednesday 11 November at 1PM (London), join us for this workshop as producer Natalie Chan speaks to philanthropic donor, Allan Wilson for a conversation around how he supports theatre makers/filmmakers at the early stages of their career.
