NFM Academy aims to equip those interested in a career in film and TV with the knowledge and the skills required to find work.

‘Talking to the industry experts has given me new ideas and angles to try to break into the industry. It also gave me a renewed sense of hope that it was possible. Meeting someone who does a job I aspire to and knowing that they live in Gateshead and not Manchester or London was invaluable.’
