Apply now for the FilmUp Mentorship Programme

If you are developing a feature film or documentary, this Script To Screen programme could be just what you need to progress your work to the next stage.

A mentor for each filmmaker forms the cornerstone of the programme, along with six FilmUp Hub days when the participants come together for group work.

Applicants must have a feature project in development and be able to demonstrate that their project and career are at the right stage for mentorship.

Successful applicants will take part in 20 hours of mentorship with an experienced film practitioner over a six-month period and six FilmUp hubs spread between September 2022 and March 2023. These hubs are tailored to meet the needs of the selected filmmakers and include workshops, peer discussions and round tables with industry leaders. 

To apply you need to be working on a feature film or documentary.
Here's what's required for the application:

  • A one-paragraph industry-related biography;
  • Information on the feature project you will work on during the mentorship (including logline, a one-page synopsis of 500 - 1000 words, stage of project, your role on the project and any key collaborators you might have attached);
  • A brief description of where you are at in the process, and what the next steps/hurdles are.
  • A list of other projects (feature film or documentary only) you have in development (if applicable);
  • A paragraph about why mentorship would be beneficial to you at this stage of your career, and what you would like to get out of the programme;
  • The names of up to three preferred mentors. (Availability of these mentors is not guaranteed, but Script to Screen will work with you to find someone suitable);
  • Up to two links to selected previous work (It is not necessary to include everything. Put your best foot forward).
