The way we consume and watch stories is changing; we no longer need a scheduled slot to get our viewing fix. Technology, and audiences are fundamentally altering the way we make & enjoy content. To embrace this monumental shift, it is vital to inspire and challenge existing, as well as emerging, talent to stay ahead of the curve, and adapt to the needs of audiences and industry.
FLEX is Screen Yorkshire’s innovative, ground-breaking response to this rapidly changing space, funded by The Screen Industries Growth Network (SIGN). The programme, launched in June 2021, is supporting writers, directors and producers to develop dynamic, authentic and fluid stories fit for 2021 and beyond. Its fundamental goal is to work with talent that is inspired by the creative freedom afforded by FLEX and ready to innovate to connect diverse stories with new audiences.
