Director Open City Docs Fest
My KT/E entrepreneurship has also involved the creation of London’s (only) global documentary film festival, Open City Docs Fest which has run at UCL for three years now. This festival which has increased its audience from c 1,500 in its first year to over 4,000 in its third year, more than doubling its ticket income along the way, has established itself as both a major event in the London arts’ calendar and as a unique way in which UCL expresses its commitment to and engagement with the broad London Community. My entrepreneurship here has involved several different sorts of recombination. The festival temporarily reverses the normal flow of innovation in a university, bringing creators of documentary film into UCL to engage with our own expertise. In order to make the festival an organic part of UCL life I have had to win the hearts and minds of academics across the university to persuade them of the value of this sort of public engagement. Finally, I have had to raise the funds each year to run the festival I have done so from entrepreneurial activities linked to film training and production, from mobilizing private donors and mobilizing UCL resources across the campus, winning significant grant support from faculties across the university.
