Birds Eye View’s highly rated emerging female and BAME feature filmmaker programme (writers, directors, producers – docs and fiction) Filmonomics has returned for its fourth consecutive year. The fourth programme hosts a balanced portfolio of inward and outward focus, with sessions on developing confidence within your professional style with trained psychologists; interrogating rejection with professional coaches specialising in female entrepreneur training; current box office and sales analysis plus future trend-forecasting.
Supported by Creative Skillset, this bespoke 9 month programme is targeted at established women and BAME film practitioners from around the UK who are on the cusp of or have made their first feature. It is designed to bridge the gap between development and distribution, mixing industry knowledge with behind the scenes networking and discussions on vital topics such as finance, teams, marketing, exhibition and audience development. One of the key aspects of the programme is the focus on the individual with sessions focusing on increasing confidence, presentation and discussion skills as well as tailored mentoring.
