INDUSTRY: State of the Union

15:00 Mon 13 Jan 2020

Rich Mix The Stage

Music video directors were the only filmmakers in the entertainment industry without a trade union. In 2018, the industry organised to demand transparency, a better culture of respect and the minimisation of free work. Picking up this conversation, we look to the power of unions, freelancing culture and the prerogatives of short form directors and film creatives in safeguarding their time and labour.

Panellists: Nia Hughes (BECTU), Dr Tamsyn Dent (King’s College London), Hazel Falck (documentary filmmaker), Christine Blake (Cinema Films Organiser, Equity), host Edwin Mingard (independent filmmaker)

£6 Session Ticket / £10 Day Ticket (2 x sessions) / £35 Week Pass (All sessions) / £2 Low income session tickets (Must be booked in advance)
