Dream Factory will bring together up-and-coming professionals to discuss key topics within the UK film industry including fundraising, marketing, promotion and distribution.

Attendees will get to see an exclusive screening of BBC Earth’s new 3D nature film, Enchanted Kingdom, which is set to be released later this year.

Stuart Ford, curator of Dream Factory and founder and CEO, IM Global, said: "The Dream Factory promises to be a vibrant, informative and richly entertaining two-day immersion into the best of British and international cinema.

"It is fantastic to be part of the International Festival for Business showcasing the richness of the UK’s creative industry. The festival is not to be missed and I’m very excited to be in the thick of the action."

The IFB is Britain’s biggest business festival for more than 60 years, hosting more than 250 business events over 50 days.

In May, industry associations BVEP, HBAA and EVCOM announced that they will be bringing meetings and events to the IFB along with the National Tourist Board, Visit England and The European Tour Operators Association.
