Eastside’s Females in Film programme is made up of two strands:
One is a week-long series of workshops, talks and panel discussions with industry professionals which aimed to give a taste of different roles and the opportunity to meet women working in the field. Participants got the chance to get hands on with industry-level professional cameras and lights, learn how an editor works, try their hand at writing a film script and lots more.
The second strand is the Females in Film mentoring scheme, offering ten young female filmmakers the opportunity to be professionally supported on an independent filmmaking project. The mentoring will culminate in November 2019 with a showcase event.
Applications for the course are now closed and the programme is running
