This year we’re also offering a limited number of exclusive delegate passes that will give you the chance to network with industry professionals and your fellow filmmakers. The delegate pass not only gives you greater freedom to walk in and out of any session* in the programme without pre-booking, it also gives you access to exclusive events in our Filmmaker Delegate Lounge sponsored by BFI Film Academy, that are only available to Delegate Pass holders. Special events in the Filmmaker Delegate Lounge include: Teatime networking with Film Funders, Working with Composers, Finding and managing cast and crew, How to network, drop-in and pre-bookable script Doctor surgeries and free tea and coffee throughout the festival. As a delegate pass holder you’ll also be invited to our exclusive BAFTA networking drinks party at the end of each day.
