    The Future of Film Entrepreneurial Storyteller Programme (ESP)

    Bringing great ideas to screen in today’s fast-changing media landscape takes more than talent and hard work.

    Commercial understanding, market know-how and flexibility of approach are increasingly essential for producers looking to bring their vision to market. The other critical aspect – and something that is impossible to teach – is your NETWORK.
