Screen Scotland has launched the Screen Professional Development Fund, a new £100,000 fund to help film and TV professionals access training, mentoring and other development on a national and international level.
It will offer individual awards of between £250 and £5,000 for activities including creative and technical skills development; screen-related business skills development; participation in talent labs; mentoring; shadowing; work-based learning; and other developmental activities.
Applicants must live in Scotland and work within the Scottish film and television sector.
Priority will be given to professional development in areas of identified skills shortages, and to applicants under-represented in the screen industries.
Applications are open now via the Screen Scotland website, and are accepted on a rolling basis with no deadlines.
