Whether you have a film in a festival programme or not, getting the most out of all the experiences a festival has to offer requires so much more than just turning up and trying to pitch your film/idea to anyone you meet. This panel of programmers and festival veterans will discuss working a festival, networking etiquette, the do’s and don’ts of approaching people and general advice on how to make the most of being at a festival to increase your knowledge and forge key connections.

Panellists for this event include Bridget Pedgrift (Protagonist Pictures), Cat Villiers (The Last Photograph, The Proposition), Finlay Pretsell (Scottish Documentary Institute), Lydia Beilby (EIFF Shorts Programmer), Alice Ramsey (Creative England).
