Student Delegate passes are also available for £108. Day passes are also available. For full details and pricing, visit the Delegate registration page.
You can also get a taster for the Industry at the following events, including:
Join a select panel of top profile Scottish directors, including Paul McGuigan (Sherlock, Lucky Number Slevin) and Gillies MacKinnon (Above Suspicion, Hideous Kinky), as they discuss the current issues and challenges in directing feature films at home and abroad.
Starting Out as a Screenwriter
The perfect event for budding screenwriters. Join acclaimed Edinburgh-based writer Annie Griffin (Festival, The Book Group (TV)) and Sergio Casci (The Caller, Sea of Souls(TV)) as they answer common questions for first-time filmmakers, offering their advice and expertise.
Who needs one or two funders when you can have thousands? Crowd funding has provided new ways to get your film made but is it for everyone? Join filmmakers Jeanie Finlay, Terry McMahon, and Hannah Rudman as they discuss the challenges and opportunities of making your film with the help of others.
Raindance's pitching event is your chance to pitch your film idea directly to a panel of top film executives. Dop a fiver in the hat, and the floor is yours for up to 2 minutes as you aim to convince the panel to make your film. At the end of the evening, the winner will get to claim the earnings. Past panelists include: Ewan McGregor, Sally Caplan, Matthew Vaughan, Roger Corman and Tracey Schoffield. The 51st State and Meet the Parents were first pitched at Live Ammo.
With your pass, you'll also have access to Shaken Not Stirred: industry networking drinks every evening of the Festival!
