About The Event

GMA®’s are back. The GMA® Events department present its brand new monthly event, the 'GMA Filmmakers Network', in partnership with Film Ahoy, Flick Fest and PROM. The GMA® | FMN, is a brand new monthly filmmakers networking event, bringing all departments of film and creative art together.

Gold Movie Awards® in partnership with Film Ahoy and PROM. present, our brand new monthly networking soirée.

We know you are all eager to get back to what we love. Making movies, networking and yes, a bit of a get together. Join us for a break from the mid-week blues, as we sip mimosas and meet like-minded film makers with a passion for film and story-telling. Walk the red carpet and have your pictures taken by the mainstream media, rub shoulders and network with the cream of British and worldwide film makers.

The first Thursday of each month, GMA® | FMN will bring together like minded filmmakers and film lovers and give them a place to network, connect and watch great new content. Hosted at CLOSE UP, a unique and fun independent cinema celebrating independent film and local film makers. Located on London's quirky and famous Brick Lane in trendy East London.

At the Gold Movie Awards®, we know how important it is to get your work seen. So, we have decided to offer all current GMA® "Official Semi Finalists" or above the opportunity to have a London premiere screening of your work. Each month, the GMA® jury will choose 1 hour of content to premiere as part of the next GMA® | FMN.

Would you like to have a London premiere screening of your work at the next GMA® | FMN? If you're a current "Official Semi Finalist" or "Official Nominee" please click HERE and fill out the form. Only forms filled out correctly will be considered.

We will be offering you, our esteemed guests, a number of opportunities at each GMA® | FMN, all completely free. We believe it's important to get yourself out there, as well as your project.

1) The opportunity to have your film distributed globally, completely free, to all current "Official Semi Finalists”, “Official Nominees” and of course “GMA® Winners”. Not only that, but you keep 100% of any profits made from the distribution of your film.

On the night, we will be offering you the opportunity to have your film (Short, Feature or Doc) distributed globally by us at the GMA's, with our partners Film Ahoy, Flick Fest, and SMG. To submit your film for GMA distribution consideration, please click HERE and fill out the form. Only forms filled out correctly will be considered.

2) An opportunity to pitch your project to all attendees, giving you access to every department of film to ensure you build a team that will see your project to completion and distribution.

For example, “I am a writer/director looking for a producer to work with on my new script”, or “I am a DoP looking for new projects to work on”, etc.

3 filmmakers will be chosen to pitch their project to the room. To have your pitch be considered, please click HERE, and carefully complete the form. Only forms filled correctly will be considered.

Want to meet indie filmmakers and film lovers in London? Maybe you're looking for a team to work on your next project. Or to volunteer your services for some set time. Or, just a chat about movies with someone who can tell the difference between Fight Club and Dallas Buyers Club? Whatever floats your boat, join us at the next GMA® | Filmmakers Network, a new monthly networking event for people who love and make films!
