Aimed primarily at early-career directors and writer-directors, this event will reveal the insights of some of the UK's leading agents to help you unlock the secrets of their world. With a panel featuring Matthew Bates (Sayle Screen)Roxana Adle (Independent) and her client, BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Tina Gharavi, this event will help filmmakers answer key questions, including:

  • What kinds of agents are there?
  • What is the agency landscape like?
  • At what stage in your career should you approach an agent?
  • What materials do you need in place before you make an approach and how should you present them?
  • What are agents looking for and how do you get their attention?
  • What can you reasonably expect an agent to do for you, and what should you be doing yourself?
  • How do you service that relationship?
  • How do you shake out a good deal?
