Guiding Lights 2013 - Celebratory Event


22 November 2013

Earlier this week we celebrated another successful year of Guiding Lights - the UK's leading film mentoring programme - at a very special reception at BAFTA, London.

The evening was great success and we had a fantastic turnout. In addition to a wide range of industry guests, it was also brilliant to see mentors both past and present there, including: Oliver Parker, Lucinda Coxon, Bart Layton, Barbara Broccoli and Olivia Hetreed.

The event included speeches from Lighthouse’s Artistic Director, Honor Harger, and Senior Producer, Emily Kyriakides, along with Rebecca Davies – representing the scheme’s main funder Creative Skillset – and our patron, Alison Thompson.

The evening followed an intensive day of pitching during which the Guiding Lights mentees presented their projects to an industry panel made up of representatives from Creative England, Artificial Eye/Curzon Film World, Cascade Media Development, Film4 and 42 M&P.
