NETWORK@LFF is the BFI flagship talent development programme based at the very heart of the BFI London Film Festival, and delivered by BFI NETWORK.
Reece Cargan has been selected along with 11 other filmmakers from across the UK to take part in this years programme.
Now in its seventh year, is supported by the BFI with National Lottery funding, and will take place from October 8-11. The 12 filmmakers were selected from 360 applicants. The BFI said the programme
celebrates difference in approach and perspective, and seeks out filmmakers looking to disrupt conventions.
In terms of interdisciplinarity, range of genre and sheer verve, this is one of the most exciting cohorts we have seen.
Previous participants include Limbo writer-director Ben Sharrock, Animals producer Sarah Brocklehurst, After Love writer-director Aleem Khan, Censor writer-director Prano Bailey Bond, and Ruth Paxton, the director of A Banquet.
