James Gay-Rees has produced a wide variety of projects but is best known for producing titles that bridge the gap between feature films and documentaries, revolutionizing the way docs are perceived and creating commercial content that appeals to viewers beyond the topic's obvious audience. His high-profile documentary films include the double BAFTA winning SENNA, directed by Asif Kapadia, and the Academy Award nominated EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP directed by Banksy. Most recently he produced AMY, a documentary about the late singer Amy Winehouse, which is on course to be the highest grossing documentary of all time.

Lorton Entertainment's Joseph Berry and Julian Bird will discuss their collaboration with James on a highly anticipated upcoming film and share some unseen footage. Lorton Entertainment was founded by a group of successful financiers who bring a unique, financially disciplined approach to the film industry. Lorton is well known for sourcing & financing commercial studio level films & TV projects in an aggressively priced fashion whilst managing the adequate risks/rewards.

This event offers a thoroughly entertaining and in-depth look into the film industry by shining a bright light on one of the greatest documentary filmmakers of our time.
