Hosted by BA (Hons) Filmmaking students at the University of Plymouth and filmmaker Linda Ward, this conference comprises a line-up of award winning professionals who will be sharing their routes into film and television and advising on finding pathways into the industry.

We will be talking with producers, directors and commissioners who have created engaging, inspiring films and television during a coronavirus pandemic this year. We will discover what they look for when hiring graduates for production.

He has also led viewers along some of the most demanding escape routes of WW2 in 'Freedom Trails' (Channel 4), revealed the life of traditional small boat fishermen in Cornwall in 'Fisherman’s Apprentice' (BBC), and dived some of the most evocative and extraordinary sites around the globe in 'Great Ocean Adventures' and 'Monty Halls Dive Mysteries' (three series for Channel Five).
