Apply for our new International Mentoring Scheme
The ScreenCraft Works International Mentoring Scheme provides structured career development with an international outlook, to enrich careers in film, TV and online work.

We match under-represented production and post-production talent with international mentors, to share knowledge and experience, widen employment and peer-to-peer networks and bring new cultural perspectives to the mentoring groups’ local and international co-productions.

This is a virtual scheme to be as accessible and eco-friendly as possible.
It will run for nine months and is designed to be conducted alongside any work.
The common language is English.

The scheme matches mentees with a volunteer mentor from a different country. Our mentees will be at any career stage, seeking to enter, return to or progress their careers.

Our mentors will have recent relevant industry experience and will typically be one or two career stages ahead of their mentee.

Under-represented talent includes anyone who feels marginalised or that their voice isn’t heard and their perspective isn’t recognised.

The benefits of mentoring for both parties include:

  • Learning from the ideas and experiences of someone who is different from you and from another country.
  • Giving and receiving feedback.
  • Building professional identity and influence.
  • An exchange of international perspectives and working methods to enrich your local and international work.
  • Widening your employment networks for local productions and international co-productions and for remote, hybrid and on-site work.
  • Building peer-to-peer networks.
The scheme’s first Mentoring Programme is for UK-based mentees from any country:
The scheme’s first programme will match mentees who are based in the UK with a mentor from another country. This programme is part of the ScreenSkills Mentoring Network, which is supported by the BFI, awarding National Lottery funds as part of its Future Film Skills strategy.
Over the course of the programme, mentees will take part in monthly one-to-one online mentoring sessions delivered by respected international production and post-production professionals, attend online masterclasses given by industry professionals, and be invited to give their own online talk to their mentoring community.
The nine-month programme includes:
  • Introductory live webinar sessions, one for mentees and one for mentors
  • 9 x one-hour monthly structured mentee-mentor online sessions
  • Online talks by mentees, with group networking with mentees and mentors
  • Invitations to other masterclasses organised by ScreenCraft Works
  • 1 x half-way check-in live webinar session for mentees, with online networking
  • 1 x half-way check-in live webinar session for mentors, with online networking
  • 1 x live webinar wrap-up session
  • Follow ups with mentees and mentors.
