Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we announce that this year’s edition will not take place in its original form.
Our pitching forums, the MeetMarket and Alternate Realities Talent Market, will both proceed in June via virtual means and as part of a series of weekends throughout the Autumn, we aim to present film screenings, talks, panels, artists’ events and community engagement activities. We will announce a full programme in due course.
