Throughout the year we run a programme of events for our members these include: Portfolio Surgeries, Screenings, Q&A sessions, networking events and our annual awards event. We also support our ‘friends’ events that aim to inform as well as entertain us.

We only like to support UK Government led schemes and non-profit organisation’s events. We will advertise to members free of charge events that will be of interest to them. Please send in events that our membership might find interesting.

We also host Master Classes, special guest Lectures and ad-hoc informal socials to just get together for a drink and chin wag.

This forum will give an overview of what a Risk Assessment actually is and the need to keep communication in a paper trail (either physical or digital) so nothing gets overlooked. Duncan Howell is a BFDG committee member, Production Designer and Senior Lecturer in Design for Film and TV at Nottingham Trent University

After the success of our first Peer Mentoring Surgery in July we will be inviting our more junior members to sign up to take part in our second Peer Mentoring Surgery. This Surgery will focus on Art Direction and will be an opportunity for less experienced BFDG members to have their questions answered or their worries addressed by a panel of experienced members. There will be 10 places available to mentees with a panel of 3 or 4 experienced members to answer questions. More details to follow soon.
