Financing Conference during the 56th Berlin International Film Festival Business Centre, 3rd floor, Sony Style Store, Potsdamer Strasse

From V for Vendetta to Match Point, the UK’s capital can always be relied on to deliver on screen. London hosted over 50 major features last year, but with new UK tax regulations due to come in to operation from April, the city is poised to become an even more popular destination.

Find out what London can offer your projects on the ground, whether studios, locations or post-production; as well as get an up to the minute analysis of the new UK fiscal rules that could deliver up to a 20% credit on qualifying expenditure.

Join Film London, peacefulfish, leading legal firm Salans and some of the UK’s top producers to discuss the opportunities that London can offer you.
