Tomisin Adepeju among 12 participants for 2019 BFI London Film Festival (LFF) development programme

This week the LFF named the 12 writers, directors and producers to take part in its annual NETWORK @LFF professional development programme. Adepeju is among 12 participants selected from 470 applications.

Alt grabbed a quick quote from Adepeju he said.  “It feels incredible to be selected for this development scheme, I applied last year but wasn’t selected so to be a part of this year’s programme is absolutely wonderful. Excited to meet my fellow filmmakers and really soak up all the knowledge and insight throughout the 4 day programme”.

The BFI NETWORK scheme, runs from October 4-7 during the LFF, where participants will take part in masterclasses, screenings, networking and one-to-one sessions with the visiting international filmmakers and executives who are screening work at the event. The 2019 focus is on filmmakers working on international co-productions or committed to making films for an international audience.

Previous alumni of the lottery-backed programme include Adeyemi Michael (2018), Amrou Al-Khadi (2016), Jenn Nkiru (2017), Prano Bailey-Bond (2017) and Sandhya Suri (2016).
