Here's something to interest all filmmakers! Film Expo South takes place in Southampton on 4th February 2016. The first of its kind in the South, this exciting exhibition promises to be a one stop shop for all things Film. Actors, producers, directors, writers, camera technicians, make-up artists and anything in between will be represented , so if you’re an aspiring filmmaker, a student, or an industry professional, Film Expo South is a must, to see and be seen at!
Gillian Tully, CEO and Founder of FES, told Southampton Film Week “Having worked in TV and film for more than half of my life it became very obvious to me that there was no large platform or event where people and organisations from the film industry could showcase their skills and services under one roof. So I decided to address the lack of a big Film industry event, across the South Coast, where networking and new relationships between key decision makers could be forged; where contacts can be made, ideas shared. The opportunity for collaboration, inspiration and engagement for the South’s huge pool of talent is why I decided to embark on this exciting challenge and create Film Expo South”
The event, which will be held at The AGEAS Bowl, has attracted significant interest and support. Visitors to the exhibition can expect to see stands from a diverse range of industry representatives and will have the opportunity to attend workshops and learn from specialist speakers including Producer and Director - Malcolm Walker, Cinematographer - Trevor Coop , Assistant Director and Production Manager – Terry Bamber and one of the top Acting and Dialogue Coaches in movies - Mel Churcher. There will also be competitions to win funding for budding new film makers!
