Getting private money to back your project

Leading private financiers reveal what they are looking for from producers when investing in UK film and high-end TV projects. They will talk about how to pitch to them, how they measure success and the international market trends that impact their decision-making.

Making EIS and the UK tax credit work for you

EIS and financing experts will discuss the best way to navigate the new EIS rules, details of the new BFI-endorsed EIS fund and how to get the most out of the UK tax relief for film and high-end TV.

How public funds are backing UK projects

Commissioners will outline how what they do is different to the private financiers, how they work with producers and the role they play in financing in an indie sector increasingly transformed by the US streamers and pay-TV platforms.

Combining the UK tax credit with an international shoot

International producers and experts bring their tried-and-tested experience to a panel that will describe how producers can best match the UK’s film and high-end TV tax reliefs with international incentives when shooting around the world and setting up co-productions.

The Producers’ View

A group of the UK’s top film producers come together to talk about where they see the opportunities and challenges ahead. The conversation will encompass raising financing for their film and TV projects in a fast-changing global market, how they nurture talent relationships to attract writers, directors and actors to their projects, and how they are working with the US pay-TV giants and streaming platforms.
