Work Experience, Internships & Volunteering
Northern Ireland Screen helps source work experience opportunities for 16-18 year olds on Northern Ireland Screen funded productions. The programme will provide work experience opportunities for 16-18 year olds who are either studying Moving Image Arts (MIA) at AS or A level or are already selected for the BFI Academy in Northern Ireland. Work experience opportunities in writing, directing, producing or acting will not be offered.
Northern Ireland Screen is not responsible for crewing up on productions. Our main function is administrating and facilitating funding for film and television production in Northern Ireland rather than actual production itself. You can read more about Northern Ireland Screen here.
Crew calls for productions which are funded and facilitated by Northern Ireland Screen will be hosted on our Calls for Crew page.
Our searchable online production guide can be used to contact independent production companies in Northern Ireland.
The various film festivals in Northern Ireland do offer volunteer opportunities and you should visit the websites of the Belfast Film Festival, Cinemagic and Foyle Film Festival for information.
From time to time, the news section of the Northern Ireland Screen website (“News and Events” is accessible from the Northern Ireland Screen website home page) will also host calls for volunteers from the film festivals.
We would advise that you regularly visit our website and/or follow us on our various social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter – links available to these via our home page. You may also wish to sign up for our regular e-Zine newsletter.
