May meetup - Coffee morning at British Film Institute, Southbank

Hello all,


Our usual Sunday morning get-together for the May meetup. We'll be there from 11am.

If Benugo Bar is too busy, we can head over to the Royal Festival Hall. If you can't find us please call/text me on[masked] :)


For those who don't yet know the format...

We'd like to use this time for several things: to talk about the different aspects of documentaries and film making; to bounce ideas off each other; to get others involved in your projects; to get feedback on your own work and to act as a general forum and an informal and social support network. We'd like to create a relaxed environment in which to do this.

Agenda for the May meetup:

This time we'd like to try something different! If you intend to come to the meetup, please change your RSVP to 'yes' then if you would like to participate, please send me a short email about what you'd like to get out of the meeting.

For example, tell me briefly about a project you're working on and who you're looking for to work with. Or tell me if you're looking to get involved in someone else's project in some way. Or perhaps you're just curious and want to come along.

A day or two before the meetup, I'll send an e-mail around to those who are coming with all the details. That way hopefully you won't leave the meetup having not spoken to someone you wish you had! Let's see what happens...


See you there!

    My first time - found it great way to meet up with like-minded people. Will definitely be coming to the next one. As a camera operator, will be hoping to collaborate with others who plan to make documentaries.

    Hi, I hope I'm going to be free from some project so that I can come and get to know the group.

    This is my first meet up with your group! Be kind. I work in film and documentary but am concentrating on my own projects at the moment. :)
