Sessions have already taken place in Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol.

Creative England is undertaking a nationwide programme of networking events for film/TV and digital professionals.

Networking events hosted by Creative England’s locations and production services team have already taken place in Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol - attended by 600 people - with the next sessions due to take place in Manchester (April 26) and Nottingham (May 29)

Further events are due to take place in Brighton in June and Sheffield in July.

The sessions are part of Creative England’s remit to support film and culture outside London and are open to production staff, crew and production companies from both drama and documentary backgrounds. They are also aimed at linking professionals from the worlds of film with those in TV and the digital media, to try and encourage cross-media collaboration.

Kaye Elliott, Creative England’s head of location and production services, said: “The popularity of these events lies in all he different ways they can help people get on and develop their careers. Not only do they offer cross-sector opportunities, they’re also useful for anyone who wants to get noticed and get work.”
