It’s #NationalMentoringDay and we’re proud to announce that Eastside Educational Trust have brought us on board to mentor this years’ BFI Film Academy.

The trust will see 25 aspiring filmmakers aged between 16 – 19  get the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of filmmaking through a series of workshops and masterclasses, in which they will get the chance to learn from, and work with, leading industry professionals through their BFI Film Academy programme.

A number of their BFI Film Academy alumni who successfully completed the course with Eastside have since gone on to launch their own careers in film; participants have been commissioned to make films; some are working within the industry and their alumni pool boasts the youngest ever student at the prestigious National Film and Television School. See what the alumni have been up to here.
