Industry Day

KCFF and Queen’s Film & Media will present the inaugural Industry Day on Friday, March 1 at the Isabel Bader Centre! There’s a full day of workshops, panels, and networking events planned, with dozens of KCFF guests, industry professionals, and Queen’s alumni. From directing to composing to criticism, there’s solid info and advice for emerging artists looking to make a career in the cinema. Check out the full schedule and be sure to register soon if you wish to attend. Industry Day is free but space is limited – reserve your spot now!
