Industry networking scheme kicks off on Feb 3 at Pepper Post.

Producer and financier Future Films and LA-based literary and talent agency Zero Gravity Management are teaming for a London networking event aimed at bringing together writers and directors with agents, development executives and producers.

The first of three-four yearly events will take place at London post production facility Pepper Post, with up to 100 attendees expected.

The scheme, which Future has said is not a pitching session, is launched under the two outfits’ joint venture Zero Gravity Management International, which aims to nurture and manage new writing and directing talent.

Future Films’ Carola Ash said of the event: “It’s quite hard for a lot of young talent to get their first break and get noticed. The idea with this initiative is that it gives them a place where they can get connected in an informal atmosphere. Attendees include some existing Zero Gravity clients, but many are not. We’d like it to become a haven for nurturing new talent”.
