Step Ahead Mentorship Programme Launches

Today, the Centre for the Moving Image in partnership with Film Hub Scotland and funded by Creative Scotland's Screen Skills Fund announces the launch of the Step Ahead Mentorship Programme.

Step Ahead is looking for eight ambitious Scottish-based individuals, employed or freelance, who are working in any specialism within film exhibition and who would benefit from high-level management mentoring to enhance their knowledge and abilities, allowing them to progress their careers and the overall sector.

Each participant will receive a dedicated film industry professional as their mentor, complementary to their career path and skills base, who will provide advice and guidance over four meetings between January and June 2016. The programme includes allowance for financial support for mentees to attend other UK or international festivals or venues for an inside look at how they operate, and mentoring will be completed by training and networking activities during the 70th edition of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, which runs 15 to 26 June 2016.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Monday 7 December.
