The British Film Institute (BFI) has named the 12 writers, directors and producers who will take part in its annual NETWORK@LFF professional development programme.
The BFI NETWORK scheme, which runs October 4-7 during the BFI London Film Festival (LFF), will see the participants take part in masterclasses, screenings, networking and one-to-one sessions with visiting international filmmakers and executives who are screening work at the LFF.
This year the focus is on filmmakers working on international co-productions or committed to making films for an international audience. The 12 participants were selected from 470 applications.
Now in its sixth year, previous alumni of the lottery-backed programme include Adeyemi Michael (2018), Amrou Al-Khadi (2016), Jenn Nkiru (2017), Prano Bailey-Bond (2017) and Sandhya Suri (2016).
