ASFF: A Wealth of Networking Events with Filmmakers & Film Festivals

This year’s BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival brought a wealth of networking events to the city.

Meet the Film Festivals provided the opportunity to build upon industry contacts, with programmers behind leading UK and international festivals in attendance to offer their unique perspective on getting ahead in the world of film. The organisations represented at the event were London Short Film Festival, Raindance, ECU Film Festival, Festival Tous Courts, Edinburgh International Film Festival, River Film Festival, and Glasgow Short Film Festival.

Meet the Filmmakers gave attendees the chance to get to know know the creatives at the heart of ASFF 2015. Sponsored by Creative England, this event invited fellow filmmakers, creatives and guests to network with artists from the Official Selection, expand their contacts list and liaising with industry professionals.

These events were accompanied by a series of networking sessions throughout the duration of the festival, where visitors could speak with professionals in an informal environment, including representatives from Creative England, RADA, Screen Yorkshire, Film London, London College of Fashion and more, many of whom participated in our acclaimed and ever-growing programme of Masterclasses.
