FilmMakers 25

Are you a filmmaker or digital content producer in the Bradford district?

We’re launching FilmMakers 25, an exciting new mentoring network, jointly funded by Bradford Metropolitan District Council and Bradford 2025 in association with Bradford UNESCO City of Film and ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK’s screen industries, using National Lottery funds awarded by the British Film Institute (BFI) as part of the Future Film Skills programme.

Could you be a FilmMakers 25 mentee? We want to hear from you if one of the requirements below describes what you do:

  • You’re a traditional film or video producer
  • You produce content for digital platforms
  • You make exceptional movies on your smartphone
  • You’re a final year FE/HE student in a media related topic anywhere in the district
  • You are already – or are keen to become – an editor, director, producer, shooter or writer of screen content

We particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups and we will match each successful applicant with an industry expert who will meet with you at least six times over a period of six months. We will help plug you into the region’s screen industry and create a network of contacts for you that you can draw on as you build your career.

We’re also looking for fantastic filmmakers and digital content producers and editors who would like to share their knowledge by becoming mentors.

This network is run by mentoring experts Under The Moon. If you wish to be considered for the network either as a mentee or a mentor, please get in touch and follow the links: email
