We are delighted to have such an array of expert speakers confirmed and clips from their newest films available to see. The day will aim to examine the myths and analyse the controversies in a fun and inspiring way.”

The BFI London Film Festival is delighted to be supporting MediaXchange’s timely one-day forum exploring the practical and business opportunities that the new 3D technologies will provide, and what this means for filmmakers”. The forum is to be held at Cineworld, Haymarket.
