We partner with the British Film Institute, the Creative Industries Federation, the Business Visits and Events Partnership, the LiveCom Alliance and other relevant trade associations to access reciprocal member benefits and work together to professionalise our industry.
We are also part of several campaigns to make our industry more diverse and to support wellbeing in our industry.
EVCOM and the BFI collaborated to created a fundraising film called ‘These Are The Hands’ to support the NHS during the height of Covid-19. The project was led by Tim Langford, EVCOM Board Member, and featured footage of the medical profession from the BFI archives. Find out more and watch the film here. Read an interview with Tim Langford here.
EVCOM are part of the Event Wellbeing Alliance, a group set up by EventWell to work for better mental health in the events sector. We meet regularly, conduct and publish research and aim to lobby for change.
EVCOM are an active member of the Business Visits & Events Partnership, an umbrella organisation representing leading trade and professional organisations, government agencies and other significant influencers in the business visits and events sector. Together we campaign for the support and recognition of the events sector.
Concentrating on British titles, the BFI carefully select material for our collections, preserving, restoring and interpreting it to ensure our film heritage is widely accessible in cinemas and in the home. The BFI also collect posters, images, publicity material, original scripts, letters and other artefacts. EVCOM run the Talking Pictures sessions in conjunction with the BFI, and created our NHS fundraiser film ‘These Are The Hands’ using BFI archive footage. Watch it here.
