UPstream’s ambitions are firmly established in the presentation of new voices and talent being exposed to the screen industries for development, whilst creating a must-attend platform for such discoveries. UPstream aims to harness selective international partnerships with like-minded organisations to work collaboratively to create opportunities for exciting IP and the talent behind it.
