Wildscreen Opens Applications for Emerging Talent Mentorship Scheme

Major natural history film festival Wildscreen has teamed up with ScreenSkills in association with The National Lottery and BFI to deliver an Emerging Talent Mentorship Scheme. The scheme aims to open doors into the natural history film industry, making it a more diverse and inclusive space. 

Now Wildscreen is seeking applications from potential mentees for the scheme. The organisation is looking for people who aspire to work behind the camera in the natural history film and television industry. By becoming a mentee, you can expect to form industry connections, develop skills that will help you move forward in your career, grow confidence, gain industry insight, and gain experience for your CV – as well as receive tangible advice and guidance from industry experts.

Applications are encouraged from groups who are currently underrepresented in the industry, as the scheme aims to empower filmmakers who are more likely to experience barriers to entry into the industry.

If the opportunity to work behind the scenes in the wildlife film and television industry interests you, and you want to be paired with an expert to receive tailored guidance and advice on developing your portfolio, skillset, and progressing in your career, then apply now on the Wildscreen website. Applications close at 23:59 BST Sunday 8th August 2021.
