Message from the editor

Screen International is relaunching its Film Summit for the first time in three years because of industry demand for the UK's top film industry experts to come together and confront the challenges facing them today and look ahead to industry changes in coming years.

There will be more than 200 high-level delegates in the audience, working across producing, directing, screenwriting, distribution, exhibition, finance, sales and more industry sectors.

Topics of discussion will include public funding in the UK, the future of distribution and exhibition, new and changing models of UK film finance, and UK producers talking about 'the state of the nation.'

The event will also include networking coffee breaks, lunch and drinks. The full list of our 2013 speakers will be announced over the next few weeks.
