A Big thank you to Tim Reid and other inspirational filmmakers from around the world who joined us at our Film Pitch Seminar on Saturday 3 September 2011.

In 2011 an inspirational Film Pitch Seminar was held with Tim Reid, Niyi Coker, Camille Abrahams and Jane Stephenson.
Camille Abrahams is founder and director of Caribe Animae, is responsible for kick-starting the animation industry in the Caribbean, but the road to success was not an easy one. Camille will talk to us about the joys and trials of introducing new genres of filmmaking and how to tell great stories in film within financial and creative constraints.

Jane Stephenson is Executive Producer at the Media Trust and a regular panel judge on film pitches for emerging filmmakers from around the world. Jenny will cover the dos and don’ts of pitching, how to pitch an unusual idea or a common idea in an unusual way and how to win!
Tim Reid is an actor, producer, director with over 40 years in film business. Tim recently launched the Legacy Media Institute to equip emerging filmmakers and offer opportunities for collaboration with more established filmmakers.
