Guru Lounge: Chai and Chat

Chai and Chat LIFF


Enjoy a cup or two of chai thanks to our friends at Benugo during this informative extended panel and Q&A session with luminaries from the British film industry, including funders, distributors and producers.

A unique opportunity to hear from UK Asian and BAME and Indian filmmakers, especially women, talk about their work and the challenges and opportunities they have faced in making their films. We will also explore scripting, finance, and the production process in both countries and opportunities for international co-production.  One not to miss!
