19 Jul 2021 : News Desk
Nerve Centre
Nerve Centre is looking for 12 young filmmakers from across Northern Ireland aged 17-25 as part of its BFI Film Academy Short Film Development Lab.

Short film scripts selected by an industry panel will receive £1,000 in funding as part of the programme.

This online development and screenwriting intensive takes place from 26th–31st July at 10am – 4pm daily and is delivered by the Nerve Centre BFI Film Academy programme supported by Fighting Words NI.

Over the six-day intensive course, participants will attend group masterclass sessions with key industry professionals, whilst working in the writers’ room in smaller creative teams, mentored to create short film scripts, treatments and to pitch for funding.

Winning pitches will each receive £1,000 in funding to produce their short film and premiere as part of the 2021 Foyle Film Festival in November. Participants will be mentored by a range of industry leaders in screenwriting, film and television production throughout the development process.

Leading names in the screen industries taking part in the programme include Hat Trick Development Producer Louise Gallagher (A Bump Along the Way) and Brendan Mullin (Boys from County Hell, Bad Day for the Cut). Northern Ireland Screen Talent Development Executives will provide information and insight into their short film development schemes during the week.

The programme will support young creative talent aged 17-25 who are preparing to become part of the screen industries through the provision of a skills-based development programme in the business of film; from development through to production to exhibition, alongside a diverse cultural cinema offer led by QFT and Film Hub NI.

Candidates must be aged between 17-25 on the first day of the programme and demonstrate previous experience in film production and/or experience in screenwriting, directing and producing.

The Nerve Centre in particular welcomes applications from underrepresented groups and intersectionality across ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, disability, religion, geographical, location (nations and regions), and socioeconomic circumstances across all departments.

The deadline for applications is Monday 19th July at 5pm and interviews will take place on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21 July.
