This Way Up

Three editions of THIS WAY UP, the UK’s annual film exhibition innovation conference, have taken place since 2014: in Newcastle, Manchester and Glasgow. 2017 will see Hull host the conference, with the dates and venue to be announced.

Jointly organised by Film Hubs Scotland, North West Central and North, this gathering invites film exhibitors from across the UK and Europe to come together to explore new ideas, emerging audience trends and the future of cinema. Be in the room with key figures from the sector – previous speakers have included renowned filmmakers, BFI, BBC, Little White Lies, Sheffield Doc/Fest and Screen International.

THIS WAY UP is essential for anyone wishing to develop practical skills, discover new models and collaborate with like-minded innovators.
