Film & TV Tweetup is now the largest industry networking event in the Midlands, UK. It allows all professional and aspiring filmmakers to come together in a creative and friendly environment to socialise and expand their network of professional contacts. The event takes place on the third Thursday of every month at Antenna in Nottingham.
Each event kicks off with a question and answer session where a special guest shares their knowledge and advice, and talks about their experiences of working in this cut-throat industry. There’s then a ‘Pitch Up’ session which allows five people the opportunity to step up and pitch themselves, their craft or a project they’re working on to everyone in the room. After that, the networking begins and continues for a couple of hours.
70-120 people fill the room each month including producers, directors, writers, camera crew, sound ops, makeup artists, costume designers, set designers, animators, storyboard artists, actors, composers, bloggers and more. No matter who you’re looking for, you’re sure to find them here and the atmosphere is always buzzing.
These events are free for all to attend and there is no need to book- just turn up on the night!
The Actors Workshop provides a professional learning program to adults aged 18+. The Workshop has four groups, meeting weekly and caters for experienced and inexperienced actors. In 2016, the Workshop launched its own TV show ‘Sketch Up’ on Notts TV Sky 117, Virgin 159 and Freeview channel 8 in the East Midlands area. The Actors Workshop is the perfect supporting partner to the Film & TV Tweetup, bringing actors and crew into regular, monthly contact and has produced numerous collaborative projects.
Antenna is a business hub located in the heart of the Creative Quarter in Nottingham. It is part of the Confetti Media Group – a family of businesses operating in various sectors across the creative industries.
The hub is made up of numerous meeting spaces and a large cafe/bar area which is where we hold all of our Film & TV Tweetup networking events. The room is large and comfortable with a chilled out atmosphere, and has been the perfect home to us since these events began. It also has several TV screens and a projector screen which we use to screen work from our special guests.
OUR NEXT EVENT
Join us for our monthly Film & TV industry networking event where you can mingle with midlands-based like-minded creatives.
We are delighted to announce that Alexzandra Jackson will be joining us on the Q&A panel this month.
Alexzandra will be talking to us about BFI Network film funding and her job as the Midlands BFI Network talent executive.
She’ll be delivering a presentation, screening a short film and a Q&A.
Prior to the Q&A, we’ll also be having a 30 minute speed-networking session which has always gone down extremely well in the past. After the Q&A will be our monthly ‘Pitch Up’ where people will have the opportunity to pitch themselves or a project to everyone in the room.
