Promo News - 15th Oct 2015

It's now been announced that the second all-day MusicVidFest will take place on Wednesday, November 4th - the day before this year's UK Music Video Awards – with panel discussions, masterclasses and talks on the business of creativity in music videos, featuring top professionals from all areas of music video production.

This year's one-day MusicVidFest conference is supported by Procam, and the programme will include a top director dissecting their own work in an interview with Promo News editor David Knight, a seminar on cinematography featuring two leading British DoPs, a keynote speech from one of the most influential people in the British music video industry, panel discussions on the pitching process and the changing economics of music video production.

Produced by the team behind the UKMVAs and BUG, the second MusicVidFest aims to create discussion and debate on key topics affecting the craft and business of music videos, involving producers and directors, to independent and label commissioners, managers and artists. 

This year's all-day MusicVidFest - which takes place at the BFI Southbank in London – follows the inaugural event in 2014, where Grammy Award-winning director Joseph Kahn was the keynote speaker, panel members included M.I.A. and Felix Buxton from Basement Jaxx, and legendary director Steve Barron presented extracts from his memoirs.

For more details on the programme and the speakers taking part, go to the MusicVIdFest website. And tickets to the event can be booked here, with Earlybird tickets available at £65 + VAT per ticket until October 23rd.
