Access is Everything?

Activities and Events

This intimate session will invite creators, producers and broadcasters to look at the series format as an evolving genre, and opens up the discussion about writing, structure and most of all access in a series project that has been a significant success for them. Through the use of clips and concrete examples, panelists will be invited to comment on issues surrounding filming in places that are difficult to access both legally, emotionally and geographically.
