The Film Futures Blog is run by the Film Futures Team, who in turn help run the Film Futures courses, such as the MA in Film Marketing & Distribution commonly known as Film Futures: Pro at NTI Birmingham, which is a postgraduate school within Birmingham School of Media, which is in part part of Birmingham City University.
But enough of that, what actually is Film Futures, we hear you ask? Well…
