WFTV EventS SCHEDULE

We run a comprehensive programme of events taking place in London, Leeds, Manchester, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, at festivals all around Europe and online.

 

These free, weekly, events for members cover a diverse range of industry-focused topics as workshops, seminars, panel discussions and screenings, with strands such as Women in Tech, Writers’ Group, Actors’ Group, Filmmakers’ Breakfast Club, Legal and Finance Breakfasts and Monthly Networking.

Due to restrictions on social activity all of our events will now be available online.

At WFTV we’re really keen to ensure that all our events are accessible for everyone. So if you have any particular access needs, please can you let us know before an event and we will do our best to accommodate you. We would be grateful if you can give us as much notice as possible – please contact admin@wftv.org.uk
