In this cut throat environment where entry level jobs list 3 years experience as a requirement as if that's not an oxymoron, this programme is trying to get that experience to 18-25 year olds who are just starting out in areas like film and TV. If accepted onto the programme you can get a five week work placement and masterclass portfolio/networking tips, and the chance to apply for a full time job at the end. Plus travel, lunch and expenses are covered so you might actually be able to afford to do it!

Workshops, networking, and the opportunity to pitch for a film season, all in the powerhouse that is the BFI, this is a week not to be missed for any 16-19 year olds committed to getting involved in film
