The third annual MusicVidFest, the all-day symposium on the business of music video creativity, takes place this Wednesday, November 9th, at the BFI Southbank, with panels, talks and masterclasses featuring some of the biggest names connected to music videos in the UK. And as with previous years, there will be a strong focus on the state of creativity in British music videos at this year's MusicVidFest conference. 

Ninian Doff, winner of the Best Director award at the UKMVAs last month, will discuss his work and creative process; directing duo Dom&Nic talk about the making of their award-winning video for Chemical Brothers' Wide Open with The Mill's ECD Neil Davies. And the day will end with a panel discussion about the general state of creativity in British music videos.

Chris Abitbol, head of music at Wanda Productions in London, will chair a panel including director (and double winner at this year's UKMVAs) Ian Pons Jewell (above), Polydor commissioner Hanan Cher, Partizan executive producer Claire Stubbs, Sony Music commissioner Laura Clayton, and director Eoin Glaister.

The panel will ponder the condition of creativity in British music videos, how the increased importance and value of music videos to record labels impacts upon creativity. And the panel will also consider the phenomenon of the canned music video, when finished or nearly finished work is shelved by labels, and it never sees the light of day. Delegates are also invited to BYOCV – Bring Their Own Canned Video – to be discussed by the panel, and the audience.

The panel will also discuss diversity in the creative sphere and whether or not more could be done to make wider range of voices in the cration of British music videos.
