Industry Events FAQs

Q: Where will Industry Events be held?
A: This year’s Industry Delegate Centre will be in the Traverse Theatre, 10 Cambridge Street. Industry events, registration, special events, networking events and the press office will all be based here.

Q: How do I get a place on the sign up events?
A: Delegates can sign up both online or in person.

Q: Do I have to purchase tickets for individual Industry Events?
A: To get access to our full Industry events programme please register for a delegate pass. All other public ticketed events are published in our public programme, which launches on May 28th. 

Q: I'm a filmmaker that is just starting out. Which events do you recommend I attend?
A: We have events focussing on low budget features that shouldn't be missed. Pitching workshops are available for emerging producers and new models of distribution will be explained. Key funders from across the UK will make themselves available at various events giving information and advice on support available for development, production and training.

Q: What's the best way to network at the Festival?
A: Come along to Early Doors every night at 6.30pm. These daily sponsored networking drinks take place every day in the Traverse Bar/Cafe in the Delegate Centre supported by Creative Scotland and EIFF Industry partners. Grab a free beer and start introducing yourself, you never know who you might meet! Please note these events are for passholders only.

Q: I'm looking for a producer / writer / director for a project I want to get off the ground!
A: Check out the Delegate List in the Industry & Press Guide and the online Attenders List to see who's around. These will both be available once the Festival has started. If people are happy to be contacted, they will have included their contact details. At the Registration Desk, our dedicated staff will do their best to help connect you with the people you want to meet.
