Focus on Exhibition: So you want to run a film festival…

10.30–13.00, Traverse Theatre 2 – EIFF Delegate Centre

This open-to-all session, delivered by Regional Screen Scotland, will address the basics, and some detail, of what it takes to start up and run a small to medium-scale film festival. Book your free place for this session via Eventbrite.

Focus on Exhibition: How to make your venue accessible for all audiences

14.15–15.45, Traverse Theatre 1 – EIFF Delegate Centre

This panel session, delivered by Film Hub Scotland, offers presentations from four organisations piloting new ways to engage previously excluded audiences and we’ll discuss a range of practical measures exhibitors can take to become more accessible. Includes case studies on how to engage those who are hard of hearing, people with autism, and people with dementia. Book your free place for this session via Eventbrite.

Focus on Exhibition: How to activate your audience and enhance your screenings

16.45–18.15, Traverse Theatre 1 – EIFF Delegate Centre

In this Film Hub Scotland event delegates will hear from three radically different exhibitors who specialise in getting their audiences excited and engaged. They’ll reveal how to surprise and delight young people, how to turn regular cinema-goers into advocates and activists and how, with a judicious use of smoke and mirrors, you can turn a screening into an atmospheric event. Book your free place for this session via Eventbrite.

Early Doors… Networking Drinks

18.30–19.30, Traverse Bar Café – EIFF Delegate Centre

Come and meet other film exhibitors at Film Hub Scotland’s relaxed drinks event. Make acquaintances and share ideas and experiences over a glass of something bubbly. Book your free place for this informal session via Eventbrite.
