“The Showrunner Exchange was extremely interesting, focussed and relevant. I would really recommend the course to anyone in the international TV drama market”

“It was informative, educational, fun and inspiring. I learnt more than I thought I would and every session, seminar, meeting was a real eye opener.

I also felt that the course was supremely organised and incredibly well managed and that you and team MX did a wonderful job being our hosts and looking after us.

Thank you for such a brilliant week – an experience I shan’t forget in a hurry!”
