A new addition to the 23rd annual Foyle Film Festival; SHOWCASE is a free, informal look at what’s next in the world of moving image media with some of the new projects taking place where TV and film meet web and mobile technologies.
For the first half of the day attendees will hear from producers and up-and-coming entrepreneurs who are experimenting with new platforms, new formats and new ways of working, with each presenter getting 15 minutes to pitch their idea.
After lunch established production companies and broadcasters will talk about what they’re working on as well as where they see the industry heading. There will also be hands-on workshops and opportunities to meet one-on-one with industry experts throughout the day.
The event takes place on 9:30am–5pm on Wednesday in the Nerve Centre. Attendance is free but places are limited so register in advance at www.showcaseconf.com
