The BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew Mentoring programme supports writers, directors and producers working across the UK from regions and communities currently underrepresented in the screen industries. Each year, selected participants are paired with a more senior figure from the film and television industries, to provide insight and support as they move towards their first features or major broadcast/online commissions.
These bespoke mentor relationships are complemented by a rich programme of events and networking opportunities as part of the wider BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew programme.
This year’s programme includes an expanded mentoring scheme aimed at supporting 20 writers, directors and producers from underrepresented groups with a minimum of five places for disabled filmmakers.
