“The Film Industry Network is one of the foremost resources for film professionals in Europe and around the world. Its awareness of the international film industry and festivals, complemented by its tongue in cheek coverage of mainstream film media makes it refreshing alternative in film news coverage.”

“In my opinion FilmIndustryNetwork UK is perhaps one of the most influential sources of current film news and reports in the United Kingdom. Iain Alexander’s aggressive, proactive and insightful approach to reporting “The Real” in the film and entertainment industries never ceases to impress me. Back in May 2012, Iain conducted an online interview with me, highlighting my music composing and visual art background and accomplishments. To date, I’ve seen a substantial increase in both actual business and client prospects, which I believe are the direct results from the online exposure that I received from Film Industry Network UK! Currently I am scoring the music and sound for an upcoming game release for a game development studio in Germany entitled “Runic Rampage”. Iain, I wish you and your staff at F.I.N. all the best, live long and prosper! Many thanks.”

“Hi everybody, I am a production manager in Paris. I would like to thank the Film Industry Network team for giving us so much information about the entertainment/cinema/TV/music universe that’s useful to amateurs and professionals as well. FIN gives us, on both English and French versions of the site, the opportunity to learn about people’s work and to widen one’s network. This is the kind of tool we need to create and change the way of working: by sharing knowledge and skills.”

“I’ve followed FIN since its creation so a lot of things are changed for the better. I think the layout is efficient, easy to navigate, and we can find a lot of information about things that are happening in the industry. I like the interviews section as I can discover people who work in the entertainment industry and that’s what FIN is all about; Discovering, working, networking and sharing with pros so it’s interesting to have their inputs.

I think it’s a great source of information as well for its up to date news section, Iain has gathered a great editorial team to write the articles so we have different styles on different matters. Not only it provides tutorials but also people can look for jobs or create them. A special highlight on fun articles such as “5 reasons why…” To me it now becomes an international reference for pros and amateurs, thanks to it, I can be aware of different projects and get connected with people from all over the world. Keep up the good work FIN, the success of your website is an inspiration for our company and for myself.”

Terence-BulleyTerence Bulley, Cinematographer and director

“I find that Film Industry Network is constantly improving. The interviews with filmmakers are always interesting and give an insight to an evolving industry. Having been in the film industry for almost fifty years, I’ve been involved with several important vogues and milestones within our art; 
Around the early sixties, Kodak’s development of finer grain and sensitive film negative allowed us to film with available light and ‘La Nouvelle Vague’ and ‘cinema Vérité’ were born. Then, in the late seventies, the Music Video was born that brought on an incredibly exciting period of experimentation and development in every department of the film making process. The late eighties saw the onset of digital technology that transformed chroma key effects forever and started a whole new world of 3D animation. The nineties saw the birth of High Definition digital shooting and now with current progress in larger chip cameras, we are witnessing the demise of negative film. What an incredible journey this has been and still is!

This is an exciting time in movie making, in fact, it always has been. Filmmakers are getting younger and often it’s difficult to know where to get advice. Film Industry Network can be a valuable asset for people searching for information so that they know what others are doing. They can find current releases or advice on getting a short film off the ground or find distribution, or even legal advice on script pitches. – Keep up the great work Iain.”

“Film Industry Network has been supporting up and coming filmmakers for a while, they have certainly supported me since 2009 and have always offered to support me in the best ways. They support the independent movement sincerely and they have built up a solid network over the years. They have witnessed and supported my growth as a filmmaker from the start, that’s why I love them and they will always have my support in return. Their website is very user friendly and simple, but always effective with the right balance of content.”
