Film Career Development Programme


Putting an end to the infamous closed-door policies that many young people find on their quest into the film industry.

As an extension to our work supporting grassroots filmmakers, we thought it was vital to create a programme for entry-level creatives. Opening the door to people the age of 16+, giving them the break they need along with intensive and continued training.
