An amazing opportunity to get into the Film and TV world
We are working with Diverse Cymru and other partners to look at improving diversity in film and TV in Wales.
We are holding an event in November on how to get in to the industry if you feel you are underrepresented.

We are looking for people in these groups or communities who:

- have a transferable skill or craft but have not worked in film and TV before; roles include hairdressers, makeup artists, dressmakers or tailors, carpenters or joiners, electricians, accountants etc,
- are interested to know more about the industry.
- No previous experience in film or TV is necessary however you need to be over 18 to attend.
