This year has seen a number of changes in both teaching and learning, as well as the Film and TV Industry. It's been more important than ever to keep in touch with people and we've been so happy to hear from authors and readers alike about the ways in which Film and TV students and professionals have been adapting during these uncertain times. We'd like to wish everyone a very happy Festive Season, and all the best for the coming year. As ever, it would be great to hear from you either by email or on Twitter - our contact details are below.
