Contract terms: Fixed term contract until 31st March 2022 (strictly subject to BFI funding)
Location: We would prefer the position to be based at the Showroom Cinema, Sheffield but we can be flexible about location, depending on the candidate’s wishes.
This key role will be focused on designing and delivering a programme of activity across the North to identify and support filmmakers, as well as providing hands on support to filmmakers at the development and production stages. It will work in close collaboration with a second Talent Executive based at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle to ensure a joined-up and comprehensive approach to talent development in the North.
The role will include supporting filmmakers to access funding; providing editorial expertise on funded projects; supporting professional development, including progress from short films towards features; and promoting opportunities available through BFI NETWORK and beyond.

They will provide creative and related oversight of funded work to ensure the strongest possible outcomes from the support provided. They will place inclusivity at the core of talent development and conduct active regional outreach, working from a grassroots level up, to ensure that the widest range of people are aware of, and can access, the funding.
