For those considering a career in film, deciding on the best course to follow can feel daunting. This panel aims to bring together educators and filmmakers from a variety of paths, to discuss the options available – both traditional and alternative. Hear about how to go about building a portfolio, gaining industry experience, and deciding on what path may work best for you.

This will be a panel talk with the opportunity for discussion and Q&A.
