Scotland's Film Summit 2017

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesPublic Engagement – Festival/Exhibition


This year the annual Summit will be focused on two key issues – the UK screen sector in Europe post Brexit; and the key developments in Scotland’s screen sector in the past 12 months.

The UK - post Brexit
One year on from the EU Referendum, this is an opportunity for the UK’s screen sector to come together to understand, discuss and debate the implications and opportunities for the UK’s screen sector post Brexit.
The BFI has led a process since last summer assisting the breadth of the UK’s screen sector to identify the key issues and opportunities for the sector through a series of forums, briefings, and commissioned research. This event will bring everyone up to date with that work, including reporting back from two major pieces of research.
There will be an update from Amanda Nevill, CEO of the BFI, followed by a panel and audience discussion about the issues and opportunities for the sector. Speakers will include Sunniva Hansson – Associate, Wiggin LLP; David Jevons – Partner, Oxera; Manon Ardison – Producer GOD'S OWN COUNTRY and Guy Daleiden – CEO Film Fund Luxembourg and Deputy Chair, European Film Agency Directors. This session will be moderated by BFI’s Head of International Isabel Davis.

Scotland – key developments
There have been some significant developments in the Screen Sector in the past 12 months, and following on from the publication of the Screen Sector Leadership Group Report in January 2017, this is an opportunity to find out about recent achievements, work to date and the opportunities ahead.
This session will begin with a keynote address from Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Relations at the Scottish Government, followed by a panel and audience discussion about the current activities, opportunities and future plans in Scotland. Speakers include John Archer – Hopscotch Films, Sambrooke Scott – Film Hub Scotland, Brodie Pringle – Screen Commission, Creative Scotland. This session will be moderated by Natalie Usher, Creative Scotland’s Director, Screen.
