Last night I attended an information session on the Women in Film and Television Mentoring Scheme. The program runs February to July, and is a support and mentoring program for women to advance in the film industry.
From the WFTV website…
Our Mentoring Scheme is designed for women who have more than 5 years experience working in TV, film or digital production. We welcome anyone working in editorial, craft or business roles in any genre.
Over six months, selected participants receive six hours of mentoring contact with an experienced industry figure, combined with an intensive programme of seminars, training workshops and networking opportunities.
One of the take aways from the event was even if you aren’t eligible to apply for the program yet, you should still complete the application form. There are people who have answered the questions on the form and solidified their career plans. I know I’m about to message the women filmmakers that I know and get us to all do it.
If you’d like to apply for the program, you have until midnight Sunday.
