Amanda Nevill introduces BFI 2017-2022
We’re delighted that Amanda Nevill, CEO of the British Film Institute (BFI), will join us to present the BFI’s new 2017–2022 strategy on the afternoon of Wednesday 30 November. She will focus in particular on the strategy’s significance to audience development in the UK and there will be a chance to ask questions.

Cinema Surgeries with Laura Rothwell
If you’re wondering how to run a top-notch marketing campaign that actually works, ramp up your social media or reach new audiences without spending a fortune, then listen up! This Way Up is offering one-to-one cinema surgeries with marketing and digital consultant Laura Rothwell. Each session will last one hour and will run from 12.00–17.00 on the first day and 12.00–16.00 on the second day of the conference.

Postcards from the Future
The boundaries between traditional art forms are increasingly blurred as filmmakers, game-makers and artists explore new technology, interactivity, self-publishing and more. Join artist Yann Seznec,
 Lisa Brook of Live Cinema UK
 and filmmaker Shola Amoo on the Tuesday afternoon to hear how they are traversing boundaries, exploring the possible and connecting with an audience similarly unconstrained by geography and definition.
