Norwich boost for film-makers

In late January, “Norwich film people” drew a standing-room-only audience of 100 creatives from across the RTS East region to Norwich’s Cinema City. It followed a similar event in Cambridge last October and provided a platform for the regional film community to hear first-hand from their peers about best practice and the challenges of working in film.

RTS East Vice-Chair and MD of Eye Film Charlie Gauvain welcomed eight speakers, including BBC commissioner Diana Hare, ScreenSkills’ Celia Small and RTS Chair Rachel Watson.

In five-minute slots, speakers were able to highlight a project, or offer advice on entry routes and upskilling opportunities within the screen industry.

A range of creatives attended, from students starting out in their careers to veterans. As well as facilitating an exchange of ideas and experiences, the event helped to showcase the talent working in a region often overlooked by broadcasters.

At a time when the industry is proving tough for many, RTS East plans to host similar events every three months.
