Applications are open for the Back In 2019 programme run by creative agency Punch and Birmingham director Daniel Alexander. The Back In programme aims to increase diversity in the city’s film industry and creative sector. This year’s programme will reach creative talent from across the city region’s diverse communities and vibrant neighbourhoods and support them through a training & commissioning programme. It is a detailed 6 month programme that needs a minimum of 2 days per month.
Budding movie makers will attend boot camps and classes, receive expert mentoring and gain the professional connections needed to get their big breakthrough. By the end of the project, which is part of the BBC Digital Cities programme, they will have completed a short small budget film.
