How do I get a job in the film and television industry?
Working on a production which has received Northern Ireland Screen funding
Northern Ireland Screen is not responsible for crewing up or casting on productions which film here. However, we will host calls for crew on productions which receive Northern Ireland Screen funding. When there are live crew calls, they can be found in the Vacancies section/Calls for Crew.
Northern Ireland Screen cannot give out any names, phone numbers, emails, addresses or any other contact details of anyone connected with a production.
If you are interested in being an extra, please look out for calls on our website. You may also wish to use our fully searchable online production guide for extras agencies.
The main function of Northern Ireland Screen is administrating and facilitating funding for film, television and digital content production in Northern Ireland rather than actual production itself. You can read more about us here.
Game of Thrones Season 4
HBO will return to Northern Ireland to film the fourth series of Game of Thrones. Currently we do not have any information about crewing up on this production. We would advise you follow us on Twitter and Facebook, sign up for our regular e-Zine (see home page of website) and intermittently check back to the Vacancies/Calls for Crew section of the website.
In the meantime, please note the general information above about working on a production which receives funding from Northern Ireland Screen.
General information about working in the industry
Northern Ireland Screen receives many queries about starting out in the industry. Please note that we are not the agency for careers and you should find Creative Skillset a useful resource in this area as they provide specialist careers information for the creative industries.
We have also included a link on this page to the National Film & Television School. There are other film schools across the UK and Ireland and you should be prepared to undertake your own research.
You may find the information in our Business and Skills section of interest, and in particular, please note that our Skills Fund is available to support you financially for training and development.
