On 17 March, the Filming in England team at Creative England in partnership with Film Plymouth hosted a South West regional crew night at Market Hall to celebrate the launch of the newly established Film Office service in the city.

The evening was designed to be informative with updates from Creative England and Film Plymouth, discussing the film facilitation service available, accommodation and key contacts across the city, and the premiere of a promotional film showcasing the locations on offer in the area for productions. 

Laura Giles, Managing Director at Screen Cornwall provided a short update on the joined-up crewing database offer with Film Plymouth. Hannah Harris, CEO at Plymouth Culture and Allister Gall, Filmmaker & Programme Leader for Filmmaking at the University of Plymouth also gave an overview on the production landscape and the creative opportunities available in Plymouth.

With over 40 attendees representing all levels of industry experience, the evening proved to be a successful networking event for all. The crew night is the culmination of two years of planning and partnerships of key organisations and is fundamental in establishing Plymouth’s place in the national film ecology which is will be of huge benefit for the city’s economy.

This activity is part of the iMayflower project and has been supported by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, who fund the Cultural Development Fund, which is administered by Arts Council England.

Supported using public funding by DCMS and ACE
