  • "If your project is selected into the Forum, focus your meetings around this project and exhaust all possibilities. Do your homework – gather as much intelligence as you can before requesting meetings. Find out what strand and slot they commission for, what they are interested in and what they are not interested in. You can then ask for more information in the meeting, ie find out straight from the horse’s mouth exactly what they are commissioning and what excites them!"
  •  "Overall value in attending the Forum –
    1. Raise project visibility
    2. Raise company profile
    3. Build relationships with international producers."
