The Cross Media Forum

  • Liz Scott

The Cross Media Forum was a 5 day event within the BFI London Film Festival. The event starts with a conference at BFI Southbank with a schedule of 8 keynote speakers from across the global media industry, to an audience of 400. The second day sees 35 selected projects pitched to juries made up of senior figures in funding, development and commissioning cross-media from all over the world, in order to compete for funding. Days three and four are a co-production and finance market, where 50+ projects and participants each took 30minute one-to-one meetings throughout the day. The final day of the Cross Media Forum is a Think Tank for senior international funds, financiers, innovators and commissioners. This project involved festival programming, financial forecasting and reporting, talent management, installation and live event production.
