Panel + Networking, Members, Industry, 60m.

As we are aware The Garden Cinema membership community is not just made up of cinema enthusiasts, but also covers a large range of film creatives, we would love to help connect our members working across all departments of the industry.

For our regular industry panels, we invite knowledgeable speakers to discuss their specific branch of the industry, with plenty of time for asking questions. After the discussion, we all head into the Garden Bar so you can mingle with fellow members.

On Monday 13 November we will be joined by Jacob Stolworthy (Chief Culture Reporter at The Independent) and Jack Shepherd (Freelance Culture Journalist), who will discuss the various aspects of writing about film, including reviews and interviews with some of the industry's biggest stars.

Tickets are restricted to 1 per member, and available for just £5, which includes a token for a complimentary house wine, beer or soft/hot drink.
