Film Futures: industry career days for students

Feedback from the events

The two days were attended by nearly 500 students from over twenty schools.

Here is some feedback from teachers and students who attended the sessions:

“I think that both days were really interesting and that it has given me an insight into jobs in media industry that I didn't know about before. It has also given me the chance to ask any questions that I had to people that have the experience and knowledge to answer them. And that I would definitely go again and recommend it to other people interested in the industry.” - Sophie Clarke, teacher at Valley Park School

"I truly enjoyed today. It was at the same time interesting but also very informative. When thinking about the film industry you only think about the making and directing of the movie and easily forget all the people who are responsible for turning the film into a success and reaching a wider audience... Also, the fact that they had real professionals talk to us really showed us the true side of the film industry." - Charlotte, student at City of London School for Girls

"The information and guests was excellent I thought, for myself I made so many notes!!! It was great for the students to hear from people actually in the industry and it was really useful for them to see other areas besides film production. Also we’d been doing a lot of this (e.g. audience research) with the students so it was great to have that reiterated by industry professionals." - Sian Chandler, Cardiff and the Vale College

"An extremely valuable day with a formidable line-up of industry professionals, for a nominal charge!  I'm already looking forward to the next one." - Rod Lewis, The Howard School
