NFM Academy is funded by Creative Skillset and supported by European Regional Development Funds and aims to equip those interested in a career in film and TV with the knowledge and the skills required to find work.
We aim to help productions in the region find this new talent, taking the challenge of recruitment and paperwork away and hopefully making sure finding the right person is easy.
We do this through networking events, Bootcamps, masterclasses, workshops where you get to hear from and talk to industry professionals. The Academy is suitable for adults who are new to the industry or those already working to step into new roles. Members of the Academy also receive CV surgeries and one to one mentoring and advice.
‘I am now more aware of getting myself out there and making contacts with people in the industry in order to get a foot on the ladder. I’ve learnt that it’s important to keep persevering when looking for creative work and to keep making your own opportunities and work in the meantime.’
Whether they are looking for a shadowing opportunity, work experience, trainees or a new entry runner position, we can match Academy members who are ready to work.
If you are looking for someone to join your team, or can offer opportunities we will do our very best to help you find the very best people.
