BFI NETWORK Weekender for emerging filmmakers – Deadline June 2nd

By May 30, 2019Training

The BFI NETWORKS’s new and improved talent development programme is back for 2019. Through the NETWORK Weekender, they design a weekend to invigorate, challenge, inspire and connect the most dynamic new filmmakers across the UK.

This year, Weekender will welcome more than 20 female-identifying and non-binary writers, directors and producers. Together, they can expand their skillset in a workshop-style environment in Manchester, from 12-14 July inclusive. All selected participants must be able to attend the programme in its entirety, unless medical circumstances specify otherwise.

Who should apply?

The BFI NETWORK is looking for filmmakers at the start of their careers who are about to take that next step into the industry but may need support in terms of finding their voice as a creative, meeting potential collaborators or furthering their knowledge of how the industry works.

We are beginning to see ripples of change in the industry, and our programme aims to celebrate the rising voices of marginalised filmmakers while nurturing their talents and helping to guide their future work.

The NETWORK hopes that participants will emerge from the weekend full of fresh ideas, inspired by intimate talks with key industry guests, and brimming with new contacts ready to spark future collaborations.
