Screen Yorkshire aims to boost diversity in TV and film
Applications closed at 12pm on 7th May 2021.
Screen Yorkshire has launched a new recruitment drive for its successful industry skills training programme Beyond Brontës.
The programme launched in 2019 with the aim of increasing access to film and TV jobs for young people from under-represented backgrounds. In the first two years, alumni have gone on to work on high-profile projects including Gentleman Jack, Anne Boleyn, Coronation Street, Channel 4’s Dispatches and First Dates.
Beyond Brontës is now welcoming applications for its third cohort. The programme is open to anybody between the ages of 18 and 24, with a passion for film and TV, living in Leeds City Region, which includes locations such as Bradford, Wakefield, York and Barnsley.
