Work Experience and Volunteering
ScreenWorks, supported by Northern Ireland Screen and delivered by Into Film, is an exciting new scheme to help young people in Northern Ireland aged 16-19 to explore screen crafts through a range of unique work experiences.
Young people are invited to apply for a ScreenWorks experience, where each participant will learn about a craft or technical role in the Northern Ireland film industry on a 3-5 day work experience placement.
You can find more information regarding ScreenWorks here.
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.
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.
