Introduction Lift-Off Film Career Road-Mapping


Workshops & One2Ones | Film industry career advice - tailored to the real indie filmmaker

The Lift-Off Global Network screens just over three hundred films per year. Our festivals have taken us all over the world into several challenging territories and we have met some of the most incredible individuals along the way - securing deals for our filmmakers and giving their project(s) the best possible chance for distribution. On our journey, we always made sure to seek as much advice as possible, attending all of the major film markets, gaining invaluable information from the industry stakeholders and the incredible creatives we met.

Being based at Pinewood Studios, the home of James Bond, Star Wars, and countless other blockbuster films, we find ourselves in a constant state of knowledge gathering and inspiration. It is a place that inspires the filmmaking souls within us. It has been our mission to be consciously proactive in gaining as much insight as possible from this incredible location. All these efforts come together, so we may pass on our insider know-how to form relevant film industry career advice to our beloved community.


Every film we screen we aim to support each of these projects with a full PR and marketing consultations. This helps us to understand the challenges so we may consult to the best of our ability. We have assessed many projects for their market durability, festival success and ultimately the filmmaker's career prospective needs. We have watched projects from conception to market release and we have learnt a lot along the way.

But most importantly, and above all else, we get to know our filmmakers inside out. Many have stayed in touch since the very beginning and we have made a point to understand each and every challenge these filmmakers and their respective project(s) have had to face along the way.

Since the beginning of 2016 we have been inviting members of our community to come and meet with us to discuss their careers, and now, as part of Lift-Off Community+ membership, we are extending these invites deep into the foreseeable future and officially making these meetups an advanced part of Lift-Off Community+ -- at no extra cost.

Filmmakers and your teams may apply via the links below. They're two options: workshops where you will be part of a 10 person class. Or exclusive one to ones, where you will be invited to the studios or Skype'd in at a time that suits you best.
