UK Media Desk Birmingham Roadshow
« on: October 03, 2007, 12:04:32 PM »
The UK MEDIA Desk is coming to Birmingham to promote the funding schemes of the European Union’s MEDIA 2007 Programme, including Development Funding, Access to Finance, TV Broadcasting as well as support for festivals, training and promotional activities.

Agnieszka Moody, Director of the UK MEDIA Desk will explain how the funding schemes work and how to submit a successful application.  She will also provide information on a range of MEDIA-supported professional training courses, festivals and markets in Europe. 

In the afternoon you will be able to book individual sessions with Agnieszka to go through your projects in more detail.

The event is aimed at independent producers, writers and directors working on film, television and interactive projects (games) aimed for the international market.  Over the last six years UK filmmakers have received €14.5 million of development funding alone from the MEDIA Programme.  Now, even more money is available, while the schemes have been simplified and the paperwork has been reduced.

So come and see if MEDIA 2007 could work for you.
