Filmonomics Returns For A Fourth Year To Support Established Female Filmmakers & BAME Film Practioners
Supported by Creative Skillset, this bespoke 9-month programme is targeted at established women and BAME film practitioners from around the UK who are on the cusp of or have made their first feature.
Birds Eye View’s highly rated emerging female and BAME feature filmmaker programme (writers, directors, producers – docs and fiction) Filmonomics has returned for its fourth consecutive year. The fourth programme hosts a balanced portfolio of inward and outward focus, with sessions on developing confidence within your professional style with trained psychologists; interrogating rejection with professional coaches specialising in female entrepreneur training; current box office and sales analysis plus future trend-forecasting.
Supported by Creative Skillset, this bespoke 9-month programme is targeted at established women and BAME film practitioners from around the UK who are on the cusp of or have made their first feature. It is designed to bridge the gap between development and distribution, mixing industry knowledge with behind the scenes networking and discussions on vital topics such as finance, teams, marketing, exhibition and audience development. One of the key aspects of the programme is the focus on the individual with sessions focusing on increasing confidence, presentation and discussion skills as well as tailored mentoring.
Filmonomics IV will run from November 2016 through to June 2017 and comprises a range of regular 2-3 times monthly sessions featuring ‘small talks’ by industry experts, in-depth professional coaching, one-to-one professional mentoring (as well as peer mentoring), workshops, a number of industry panels, preview screening events as well as regular networking activities and meet-ups. The course encourages debate, peer-to-peer exchange and a focus on shifting attitudes and policy in real time with those who are directly experiencing it first hand.
