Film for professionals in Arts and Culture:
We have developed a regional Film Network to connect independent cinemas, festivals and film and media organisations. Working as a consortium, the network develops regional and national initiatives to support and engage children and young people in cinemas, screening spaces and film. Audience development plays a vital part in the network’s portfolio, ensuring the film offer in the region is exciting, broad, relevant and inspiring to young people.
For children and young people:
Film and Television Careers Event
There is a lack of knowledge around the opportunities, careers and ways into the industry for young people in the West Midlands. To fill this knowledge gap we run Careers Fairs for 14-19 year olds. The Careers Fairs give young people the chance to meet industry professionals and talk over their options. Our next Fair will take place in March 2019. Date and details to follow.
BFI Film Academies
The BFI Film Academy – UK Network Programme is for 16-19 year olds who are passionate about film and want a career in the film industry. This exciting programme offers hands-on filmmaking courses, aimed at developing knowledge and skills. There are three different BFI Academies in the West Midlands, find out more:
