Taking place at Cardiff’s The Old Library on 28th November, ScreenSkills Film Bootcamp will be an intensive one-day training course for new entrants that want to work in film production. This event is supported by ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK’s screen industries, using National Lottery funds awarded by the BFI as part of the Future Film Skills programme.

From carpentry to production co-ordination and camera crew, there is a host of job opportunities behind the scenes for creative and hard-working people of all backgrounds. ScreenSkills Film Bootcamp will provide a practical understanding of the sector’s employment landscape, and how participants can get involved with Wales’ vibrant film industry.

The event will feature workshops and talks led by industry experts, covering topics such as how to progress in film craft roles, freelancing, CVs, networking and working on set.

The day will finish with an opportunity for participants to network with their peers and the speakers.

ScreenSkills Film Bootcamp is designed for people over 18 years old and not in full-time education, who are seeking to start a career in the film industry and can evidence some practical prior experience in TV and film.
