Why is it, when the market for independent movies is growing strongly, that so many independent production companies struggle to make ends meet? Angus Finney analyses the salutory experience of Renaissance Films, which burned through £25 million of City money before crashing into insolvency. His lecture will be followed by a panel discussion, for which he will be joined by Terry Ilott (director of the Film Business Academy, former CEO of Hammer Films and chronicler of the rise and fall of Goldcrest Films), Michael Kuhn (CEO of Qwerty Films and former CEO of PolyGram Filmed Entertainment) and prolific Scottish producer Christopher Young (of Young Films).
