BFI NETWORK x BFI Film Academy+ Midlands online mentoring 2023/24

BFI NETWORK, with support from the BFI Film Academy+, is providing Midlands-based film producers, directors and screenwriters with the opportunity to spend three 60-minute mentoring sessions with an industry professional who will advise on projects and/or creative practice.

Due to the nature of the funding, this programme is designed for people 18-25 living in the midlands. However, on occasion and where appropriate we will invite applications from those 26 and over.
Please note, spaces on this mentoring programme are limited due to budget constraints.


You will have three 60 minutes mentoring sessions via Zoom. Filling in this short application before the sessions will help your assigned mentor understand where you are right now, as well as where you’d like to be in your filmmaking practice. These questions will also help you to focus on what you want to bring to the session and what you’d like to achieve in your time working together.

Once assigned to a mentor we will send you their name, email address and a copy of your answers; it will be your responsibility to organise sessions directly.


All of our mentors are full-time professionals working in the film industry. They bring a wealth of industry insight and experience to our programme.


We may share your name, email address, and Skype ID with external mentors and coaches to help your development. For more information on our privacy policy, see our website HERE.


You can apply by completing their form HERE.
