UKTI is hunting for indies to travel to a roundtable in Italy and attend a day-long event in partnership with the Indielab TV Accelerator initiative.

The government body will pay £150 towards producers flying to Milan on 18 November for a three-hour event designed to help boost co-production opportunities with the Italian creative sector.

The roundtable follows the release of the latest James Bond film, Spectre, which was partly shot in Italy, and will include a range of local producers sharing their knowledge about the available schemes to support international cooperation opportunities.

Topics for discussion will include the availability of tax credits, co-production opportunities and shooting at Italian studios  

The event will be moderated by Lucia Milazzotto, director of MIA, the Rome-based international audio-visual market.

Producers interested in attending should contact Valeria Notari.

Separately UKTI has partnered with former drama and entertainment producer Victoria Powell accelerator programme Indielab for a Meet The International Broadcaster event on 10 December.

The day-long event, which will take place in King’s Place, London and costs £25 to attend, will explore the key trends in international distribution and feature attendees from broadcasters in Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, Brazil, Mexico, the US, Canada, Italy and Sweden.

Indielab will host a lunchtime panel discussion with representative from tax and business advisors Nyman Libson Paul.
