Book a 1-2-1 Filmmaker Surgery with BFI NETWORK

BFI NETWORK provides short film production and early feature development funding to new writers, directors and producers based in the North with a creative track record.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the funding and support on offer at BFI NETWORK or have a film project you’d like to discuss then there’s an opportunity for you to book a 1-2-1 surgery with Roxy McKenna, BFI NETWORK Talent Executive at Film Hub North, during Leeds International Film Festival on Friday 15 November at Leeds Town Hall.

The only requirements you need to be eligible for a surgery are:

  • Based in the North of England
  • Haven’t had a feature film produced and distributed
  • A creative track record. This could be student work, or something created at a grassroots/non-professional level, and it may be in film, television, theatre or another artform.
  • You need to be over 18 and not in full-time education.

Roxy is particularly keen to hear from underrepresented voices working in the creative industries who are either currently working in or interested in film.

To book your 1-2-1 surgery please email Roxy McKenna directly:

Don’t worry if you’re unable to book yourself onto a surgery this time around, there will be other opportunities across the region in the coming months. Just keep an eye out on Film Hub North’s filmmaker events page here

If you need to cancel your surgery for whatever reason, please contact:
