The WFTV Mentoring Scheme is a programme designed for women who have more than seven years’ experience working in film, TV or digital production (5 years for the Northern Ireland scheme) and are looking to take a significant step in their career.
We encourage applications from all disciplines and areas of the film, television and digital industries, including creative, craft, technical and business roles. In the past have had a set decorator, a colourist, an agent, a costume designer, a vision mixer, a media lawyer and a composer, in addition to directors, writers and producers.
The scheme runs for six months, during which time participants receive six hours of mentoring contact with an experienced industry figure and an intensive programme of exclusive seminars, training workshops and networking opportunities.
It is free to apply and to participate in the WFTV Mentoring Scheme and you don't need to be an existing member to apply.*
