Working in partnership with The Grierson Trust, First Light is offering free places on a new Second Light training Lab which will concentrate on documentary filmmaking.
This is a great opportunity for new entrants, aged 18-25, to work with experienced professionals to begin a career in documentary production.
The Lab will be held in Birmingham for 3 consecutive days (week beginning 28 May 2012) and participants will then attend Sheffield Doc Fest as part of their training and development.
Reasonable travel expenses will be provided to the workshops in Birmingham, as well as lunch. Travel to, and accommodation at the festival will also be covered.
The Lab program is open to anyone, however First Light are particularly looking for applications from new entrants under-represented in the industry, e.g. non-graduates, women, young people from BME backgrounds and those with disabilities.
Deadline for applications: 12noon, 26 April 2012
