Tilt Talks: 99 Minute Film School with Elliot Grove (Raindance)

Thu 10 Oct 2019
The Joker (upstairs), Brighton

About the event

According to Jean-Luc Goddard, all you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun.

Yeah, right.

Join Elliot Grove – founder of the Raindance Film Festival and the British Independent Film Awards – as he runs through everything you really need to make a film and launch your 99 minutes.

This Tilt Talk brings Elliot’s infamous crash course (delivered in Toronto, Venice, and London among others) to Brighton for the first and possibly only time.

You’ll get loads of practical tips including how to:

- Find a brilliant script

- Market your film

- Source a film crew

- Find work on film sets

- Frame the perfect shot

- Get your film seen

- Get paid actual cash money for your work...

...and other useful stuff that Goddard forgot to mention.

Of course, we can’t teach you everything about filmmaking in 99 minutes, but you’d be surprised just how much you can learn in a single evening.

Spaces are strictly limited, as this is going to sell out quickly. (The course usually costs a minimum of £25 to attend.)

See you soon, filmmakers…
