Article: EVENT: 24 March – Film London Exhibitors’ Breakfast at Catford Mews

Join Film London for the next Exhibitors’ Breakfast, hosted by the Catford Mews in Lewisham, Borough of Culture 2022.

At this event for exhibitors, Charles Gant of Screen International will highlight upcoming independent cinema releases available for exhibitors to book.

Paul Bowman of Film Hub London will present funding opportunities and bursaries that the Hub offers to exhibitors and their staff.

The Breakfast is an excellent opportunity for Film Hub London members to meet, network, share best practice and explore ways in which they can work together to boost audiences, broaden their reach and engage diverse new audiences.

Our breakfasts have helped build strong partnerships: venues have brought in new festivals, exhibitors have forged collaborations, and mentoring relationships have developed.
