About the Scheme

Glasgow Film Festival’s Talent Mentorship Scheme is for emerging professionals working in film from under-represented backgrounds.

The mentorship will provide practical support and training for filmmaking professionals over a period of six months. Successful applicants will be assigned mentors with expertise in their chosen field of screenwriting, directing or producing, who they will meet with once a month on an agreed date.

The mentorship will provide support to either develop a particular film project or receive advice on career development and opportunities.
