About the Event
The traditional systems of funding and distribution have often failed marginalised filmmakers, but there are ways of empowering yourself and creating work without relying on the old ways of doing things. WFTV members are invited to this online panel discussion with Grace O’Keefe and Peter Storey from Greenlit.com.
Grace and Peter will explore ways of building your audience, and working with your community to raise funding, develop ideas and launch your work into the world. Themes discussed will include pitching and promoting your work in different contexts, understanding your audience, and how to maximise your impact when raising funding.
There will be an opportunity to ask the panel questions during the last 15 minutes of the session.

Founded by Peter J. Storey in 2019, Greenlit has helped raise millions of pounds for creative projects. Our philosophy is empowerment – by enabling creatives to build the necessary knowledge and techniques to develop their audiences and fund their work. Greenlit believes everyone has a story to tell— whether by song, in film, or on stage. Greenlit has partnered with the British Urban Film Festival (BUFF), CineCircle’s Women’s Film Festival and Lesflicks and is committed to championing projects from underrepresented communities and identities.
Peter is the Founder and CEO of Greenlit and takes special responsibility for overseeing film activities. A graduate of Queen Mary University, London and of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Peter began working in film lighting, across all kinds of productions from the smallest student shoot to Hollywood blockbusters.
Originally hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, Grace is a director, writer and producer based in London. As Head of Community at Greenlit, Grace draws upon her experience as a creative and a former teacher, working to guide creatives through their crowdfunding journey.
