Enticing British audiences to watch British indies

Birmingham City University and Creative Networks are to celebrate Britain’s film craft next week as they share details of a new programme providing opportunities for audiences across the UK to discover new films and hear from the talent behind the camera.

Speaking at the free event on Thursday 31 January will be Edward Fletcher, joint Managing Director of Soda Pictures film distributors, founded in 2002.

Edward will be discussing the New British Cinema Quarterly (NBCQ) programme, run by Soda Pictures, which is a new programme of distinctive and original films from British filmmakers. Selected from the UK’s major film festivals, a new film is screened each quarter and accompanied by a Q&A session with the filmmakers as part of the NBCQ programme.

The event at Birmingham City University’s Millennium Point campus will also include screenings of two short films, ‘Scrubber’ and ‘A Gun for George’.

Event host Creative Networks brings together parties involved in screen and sound media in the West Midlands, promoting both successful business development and collaboration.

The event runs from 5.45pm until 8.45pm at the University’s Millennium Point campus. To book your place email creative.networks@bcu.ac.uk, call 0121 331 5400, or register online at www.creativenetworksonline.com.
