You may have a great idea, an excellent script and a good camera; you may even have the latest editing suite but is it enough to make a film others will want to see?

With a few tips and hints from three filmmaking professionals - a screenwriter who has just released her first feature, an active film director and producer, and an experienced Final Cut Pro editor - you can learn new or fine tune your existing skills.

Come to City University London on the evening of 28 March to hear about best practice in digital filmmaking today, learn from professionals and peers, and watch a selection of short films created by City's short courses students.
