Talent Development

Every year Into Film takes on over 100 Film Club Members from all over the country and gives them a priceless opportunity to take their first steps into the world of film. This is our Talent Development programme.

From providing them access to interview the biggest names on the red carpet, to learning key skills required in the film industry, the programme rewards and develops passion for cinema, and continues to offer great opportunities once you have graduated.

Applications are now closed for this round of Talent Development, however if you wish to register your interest you can still do so — download your application form today!

Becoming the voice of Into Film

Luke Evans

Through our Talent Development programme young people will become the voice of Into Film and enjoy expert training in film reviewing, reporting and programming.

- Reviewing: Participants will learn the three most important techniques when it comes to review writing: inform, entertain, evaluate. They will also be encouraged to hone their own writing style, so as to make their reviews stand out from the crowd.

- Reporting: We place our Talent Development participants at the most high-profile events on the film calendar, such as the BAFTAs and a series of high profile red-carpet premieres. We've also sent reporters to interview film stars at press junkets and gained them access to behind the scenes of film studios both in the UK and even Hollywood.

- Programming: Participants will also learn how to make their own film clubs successful through imaginative programming. They will learn how to search through our vast catalogue and make excellent, age-specific film choices for their club, and also how to publicise screenings and ensure regular attendance.

Career Development

For those interested in taking their passion for film further, Talent Development participants will have access to accredited vocational training, careers advice, mentoring and work placements all key steps to gaining the skills and experience to help them gain employment.

We will also periodically host online careers support via webcasts and e-mentoring sessions at pre-publicised times staffed by film-careers specialists. The resulting Q&As will remain on the site to add to our ever-growing bank of free resources. This will be complemented by interviews with former Talent Development participants.

We've already made a start - so to get a sense of what's on offer, take a look at Talent Development graduate Nathan's report about his work experience placement at Sky Movies, Tara’s article about her placement at Feref PR, and Lily's report from a day's work experience with Paramount Pictures.
