Inside Pictures hosted its annual networking reception in Cannes last week – the first opportunity for the alumni network to meet the new particpants of the 2017 programme. The event, sponsored by the Norwegian and Swedish Film Commissions, was also attended by many of this years’ speakers, as well as representatives from our funders and sponsors, including Soon-Mi Peten – Head of Sector, Promotion, Training & Festivals for Creative Europe MEDIA.

The MEDIA sub-programme of Creative Europe is a principal funder for Inside Pictures, without whom the programme would not be possible to implement. Through their support, Inside Pictures has been able to continue to provide talented individuals the opportunity to grow their business and contribute to the wider industry.

Our Cannes reception also offered a chance for past particpants to catch up with each other, with attendees stretching back as far as the Class of 2002. The Inside Pictures alumni network is frequently cited as one of the strongest benefits of the programme, offering particpants a wealth of contacts who are eager to share their expertise.
