PLEASE NOTE - I've set up a mailing list which you can subscribe to via the blog (http://filmmakerscoalition.blogspot.com/). If you want to receive the weekly bulletin by e-mail then just enter your e-mail address into the box on the top right of the page.

The old Facebook Group is due to be archived soon so we will no longer be able to message members via Facebook. All future bulletins will therefore be sent via the mailing list so please do sign up if you want to continue to receive them.

Otherwise you can keep up with BFC developments via the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BrightonFilmmakersCoalition).

Keep an eye out on the website for extra news and information:

We would love to start getting members more involved with generating online content when the new website is up and running. The kind of thing we are looking for is perhaps a small article on some of the best websites for scriptwriting information and advice or an article on how to use crowd funding sites. New articles and blogs will be linked here. If you are interested please contact.
