“We are in unknown territory” but “everyone is pulling in the same direction”, suggested the speakers.

Opening this year’s Industry Conference at Toronto International Film Festival (Sept 8-18), a panel of UK experts moved to calm fears over the British public’s decision to leave the European union.
