Six industry sponsors and a host of exhibitors are backing BECTU's Freelancers' Fair on Friday 27 April in London.
Participants from across film and television will be treated to a great mix of seminars and workshops. They can also opt for one-to-one advice sessions with some of the event's sponsors and will have easy access to dozens of exhibitors and a technical area and VR suite to try out new kit.
Sponsorship this year comes from six organisations:
All our sponsors, except for Pinewood, will be taking part on the day and will be available for one to one advice in the event's exhibition.
More than 25 exhibitors will be taking part this year with ARRI and Inition providing, respectively, the technical area and VR suite.
