We’re very pleased to announce that this year we’re offering the chance for festival goers to post their questions to industry panellist through Twitter. This will come as particularly good news to those who cannot make the festival this year but remain interested in our many industry events.
We’ve teamed up with The Reel and Radar Music Videos to offer Twitter users the chance to directly ask industry experts questions. All you need to do is send us your questions on Twitter and we’ll pick the best 3-5 to ask during the panels. We’ve selected the industry events we feel will yield the most advice, discussions and of course, debate.
To ask your questions, send them to their respective organisations on Twitter at @RadarMusicVideo or @TheReelTweets. Please use the hash tag #RSSF so we can keep track of your questions. You may of course spread your questions over several Tweets. We appreciate that 140 characters doesn’t allow for a great amount of detail.
