BFI's Ben Roberts to answer funding questions on Twitter

Reading time: 1 minutes and 6 seconds

The BFI is giving directors and other creatives the chance to put their questions to the BFI's Head of Film Fund Ben Roberts over Twitter this week.

Ben will be answering questions live and in person from representatives of the film industry at the Cannes Film Festival this Tuesday (14th). However, the BFI also wanted to open the Q&A session up to those unable to make it to the Croisette, so Ben will be responding to queries via Twitter at the event too.

The BFI Film Fund team looks after the UK’s biggest public film fund, with the aim of supporting UK filmmakers both emerging and established. The fund supports projects in development, production and distribution, with recent releases including Sightseers, Berberian Sound Studio, The Spirit of ‘45 and Seven Psychopaths. The BFI has provided the following questions to get you thinking…

What are you looking for in a film? Do I need to be an experienced filmmaker to apply to the fund? At what point do you know if a film will be successful?
