About the speaker

Phil Hunt is managing director of Bankside Films and Headgear Films, the biggest financier of independent films in the world. An entrepreneur at heart, he’s had a circuitous path into the film industry. He began producing feature films in the mid 90’s, after investing in London real estate for some time, with micro budgets that occasionally found more than a micro audience. Prior to the film business, he was an advertising and music photographer including working with bands such as Big Audio Dynamite. He is now launching a new venture, Bohemia Media, aimed at fostering diverse voices and stories.

    Very inspiring session. Phil took us in a journey to the world of Film Production and shared many moments of his vast experience and also addressed the investment risk role in cinema. At the end, we all asked for another session!

    Loved the whole show Phil thank you. Very entertaining and informative, Trisha and I are both Raindance members and she had it on her laptop while I had the questions on my mobile.

    We are both in Florida at the moment although I am British & half way through the talk a huge part of a tree crashEd onto the driveway just outside the front door ( recent high winds ) and that didn’t stop us listening !

    Thanks again stay safe everyone Mark & Trisha

    It was an amazing session by Phil. He was quite candid and shared his experiences of being an Executive Producer in a very straightforward and honest manner. With his vast experience, he shared some really good insights on what works and what doesn’t work commercially. He also talked about the mistakes he did early on, in his career and talked about the importance of failing and how important failure is for your growth. Overall wonderful session and lot of learnings to takeaway. Thanks Raindance and Phil Hunt for this !
