Four Days in June

17th May 2007 by Maura McHugh

Channel 4 is organising an event known as Four Days in June at their HQ in London from June 11 – 14 2007:

Members of the public will have the opportunity to attend seminars and masterclasses with various Channel 4 commissioning executives, high-profile on- and off-screen talent – including Academy Award-winning film director Kevin Macdonald; double BAFTA-winning writer Peter Morgan; producer and writer of The Office, Ash Atalla; Peep Show writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, and internet entrepreneur Martha Lane Fox – plus a selection of leading independent production companies.

On the last day people will be able to pitch ideas to a panel of commissioners from Channel 4’s Features department.

Each day must be applied for individually, and Channel 4 requires your name, age, email, contact phone number, and the day you wish to attend. For the first three days you must include a 150-word paragraph on how you would benefit from attending the event. All entries must be received by midnight on 28th May 2007.
