Local Film Culture, Global Exchange - 1 day conference in London

The Independent Film Parliament (a consultative forum for pluralism and diversity in film culture) presents Local Film Culture, Global Exchange
Wednesday 30 November 2005 Institut Francais, London

This one-day discussion of film culture and policy, with national and international speakers from the industry, is the first of its kind in London, following on from the first parliament held at the Cambridge Film Festival in 2003. Speakers include Peter Grant, author of 'Blockbusters and Trade Wars', and Canadian actor Pierre Curzi. As well as the government's film policy, the debate will examine UNESCO's recent initiative to sustain diversity in the marketplace.
