London event to take place across two days in 2017.
The Distributor Slate Day will be back this year for an expanded third edition.
The event will see 25 distributors presenting upcoming slates to more than 300 exhibitors and will take place across two days rather than one, running September 19-20 at London’s Picturehouse Central.
Organised by Film Hub London and Film Hub South East and funded by the BFI through the National Lottery, the event aims to forge stronger ties between the country’s distribution and exhibition industries.
Distributors scheduled to attend include studios Disney, Fox, and Lionsgate, alongside indies including Arrow, Altitude, MUBI and Dogwoof. Films expected to be presented include The Florida Project and Loving Vincent (Altitude), The Shape Of Water (Fox), On Chesil Beach (Lionsgate), and Breathe (STX).
Alongside the presentations on day one, the second day will allow for one-to-one meetings for attendees.
Adrian Wootton, chief executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, commented: “Exhibitors and distributors alike have shown real enthusiasm for the Slate Day, and it’s by popular demand that we’re offering a second day dedicated to networking.”
