The LOCO 2019 industry programme has an unprecedented number of sessions for those who have or wish to have a career in Comedy Film or TV. With targeted sessions and networking events for writers, directors and producers, this year’s programme will be divided into two sections: one catering to those new to the industry and the other targeting more experienced professionals, ensuring that everyone receives training that is best suited to their level. Following research among previous attendees and followers, we also have more ways to engage than ever, with full day passes and individual sessions of masterclasses, panels, advice surgeries and even a match-making brunch.

To take advantage of our individual sessions, click through to our Producing Day, Directing Day and Writing Day to see what is on offer!

Previous attendees have gone on to do amazing things – we expect no less of you lot. We’ll see you there.

LOCO is the only festival that truly understands the importance of comedy. And they’re so nice they make you feel all gooey inside.
