The This Is England Festival offered the perfect opportunity to create a cultural and professional bridge with producers and directors from Normandy who wanted to meet their British counterparts. With the financial support of the British Film Institute (BFI), Normandie Images, Cinéma Omnia République, Fanny Popieul and the festival team proposed a morning of meetings to discuss:
co-production, financing, filming, international tax credits but also sharing experiences and projects.
After an introduction by Annick Brunet-Lefèvre for Normandie Images, a video conference with Film France followed.
The time of exchanges was extended on the spot around a tasting of local products proposed by Rouen Tourism.
