The annual week of distributor events known as London Screenings has casually formed in recent years around the back of the BBC showcase in Liverpool, when the production and distribution powerhouse shows off its new shows to hundreds of global buyers, who then descend to London to meet with other distributors.
A spokesperson for the group said, “Over previous years, the week in London post BBC Studios Showcase has become a destination for key buyers around the world. This has been down to the calibre of the events and presentations arranged by the key London-based distributors. Having listened to our buyers, the logical evolution is for those companies to bring buyers a fully curated series of quality showcases across two weeks, each planned to avoid screening conflicts and all under the official banner of The London Screenings.”
More to come.
