The BFI is committed to discovering and supporting the next generation of British filmmaking talent and launched its flagship UK-wide talent NET.WORK on 19th September at the Brief Encounters Festival. The Talent NET.WORK will be delivered by its national partners, Film Agency Wales, Creative England, Creative Scotland and Northern Ireland Screen, as well as Film London.

In addition to identifying and supporting new and emerging talent of all ages, the initiative aims to add value to existing schemes run by the National Screen Agencies and Film London, and to build further connections with Creative Skillset’s work in this area and with the Film Academy for young people. NET.WORK executives across the UK will work collaboratively and will maintain close liaison with BFI colleagues.

For Welsh born and/or resident talent, Film Agency Wales will offer opportunities such as:

• Specialist labs and masterclasses

• Surgeries and preparatory market sessions

• Short films and sector partnerships

• Improved talent networks & peer to peer support

• Bespoke mentoring for talent and projects

• Talent showcasing, script reading and networking

Details for the various components will be announced over coming weeks and months, led in Wales by newly appointed Talent NET.WORK Manager, Tracy Spottiswoode.

In the future, the network will be further complemented by a dedicated area on bfi.org.uk for the discovery, growth, promotion and funding of new writing and directing talent in the UK, through peer review and direct industry engagement.

A video introducing the scheme is available to view here.
