The NFVF has been running a high level producer course led by Angus Finney and Women of the Sun have now obtained Finney's services to share some of his secrets in this very special one off Seminar.

Producers who are aiming to make films for both local and international audiences should not miss this rare chance to participate and learn about the business of film from one of the world's experts.

Angus Finney has been MD of Renaissance Films, a UK-based development, production, financing and sales company a leading international sales company, has executive produced many films incl. Neil Armfield’s CANDY staring Heath Legder (Official Selection, Berlin 2006). And now runs London's premier film finance market, the PFM. Finney has been involved in the raising of more than $120m towards independent film production over the past decade.

Participants should realise that the value of the seminar is made even more worthwhile by the notes/MBA style course pack, which is worth the fee even before they have benefited from the actual seminar.

WoS seminars are aimed particularly to empower women filmmakers, bringing our members together to learn and network, but we encourage all producers both female and male and of all levels to attend.

The Seminar
· The Film Value Chain
· Creative material selection
· Project Management

An MBA style pack will also be available to the attendees. This will cover a range of key issues on international film business.
