Slate Days: Save the Date!

Distributor Slate Days is a major industry event for distributors and exhibitors. It takes place annually, building stronger links between distributors and exhibitors and showcasing a range of exciting upcoming theatrical releases.

The 2021 event takes place on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 September at Picturehouse Central, and will consist of presentations from distributors on their upcoming theatrical release slates and marketing plans on day one and an industry talk and structured 1:1 meetings on day two. Organised in a speed dating style, the meetings are a chance for exhibitors, distributors and key partners to have focused one-on-one time with each other.

Distributor Slate days is presented by The BFI Film Audience Network (BFI FAN) and delivered by Film Hub London and Film Hub Scotland.
