DIAL F FOR FREELANCER
Example project #1 image

It has been a long-time desire of mine to create an online directory of film exhibition and distribution freelancers.

Our industry is so much about who you know and unwittingly creates gatekeepers.

This platform is an attempt to democratise our sector a little more and create a community for those of us who work in it.
