In just two years Power to the Pixel’s London Forum has become the leading event in the UK film industry calendar for creators to connect with key digital innovators: pioneers who are developing new models of storytelling, film financing and film distribution across multiple platforms.

Brand new for this year was The Pixel Pitch, a ground-breaking cross-media pitching forum for seven of the best UK and international cross-media film projects. The selected project teams competed for the BABELGUM PIXEL PITCH AWARD of £6,000.

Other new and dynamic ways to exchange ideas, get inspired and build partnerships included:

  • a cutting-edge conference
  • one-to-one business meetings
  • workshop sessions
  • networking receptions
  • the launch of Breathe, a cross-media project
  • think tank discussion group
