Delivered by Film London and Film Export UK, the Market Place scheme is aimed at providing people starting out in the industry with the knowledge, skills and experience needed to establish a successful career in film sales - be it in acquisitions, business affairs, publicity and marketing, or sales. In June 2011, an event called Market Place Live gathered a host of top film professionals and challenged them to take a hypothetical film from inception to exhibition in 90 minutes in front of a live studio audience. The panel included the following members: Peter Buckingham (BFI) Gurinder Chadha (Bend it Like Beckham) Leon Clarance (Octopus Media) Michael Levine (DVD Pro) Justin Marciano (Revolver Entertainment) Andrew Orr (Independent Film Sales) Alison Thompson (Focus Features) Barnaby Thompson (Ealing Studios) The session was videoed and is now available on the Film London web site. For producers and anyone else interested in the business side of how films get financed, produced, and distributed, this is an excellent insight into how film business people think and the concerns that shape a film project on its journey to the cinema. The video weighs in at nearly an hour and half, so grab your popcorn. Watch the Video » More from the Market Place Scheme »
