Between Wednesday - Friday during festival week, we offer high-level masterclasses, panel discussions, film screenings and networking opportunities, designed to connect filmmakers to the industry. Encounters provides an informal, social and friendly environment for professional exchange, learning and conversation.

You can access all of the industry activity, alongside international competition screenings, with a festival pass. Passes will go on sale Summer 2018.

An overview of the type of industry events that take place at the festival follows.
