This event will be hosted by Matt Tiller, Director of Programming at Channel K, who will be discussing treatments and his experience of their journey from proposal stage to screen and how to pique the interest of production companies. John Maxwell, from Tubedale Films and LJMU will also be sharing his thoughts and experiences.
