National film talent scheme, funded by Creative Skillset, is open to applications from writers, directors and producers.

Screen Yorkshire has opened the applications for their national talent development scheme Triangle, now in its fourth consecutive year.

Supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund, Triangle 2014 is a ten month programme that will support experienced and emerging writers, directors and producers in film to develop new working relationships.

Up to 66 participants from across the UK will be selected to take part before being reduced down over the programme to three teams of three, who will then pitch their projects to an industry panel in London.

Dan Simmons, head of film at Creative Skillset, commented: “Triangle has proven itself to be a hugely successful scheme, providing significant support for writers, directors and producers from across the UK and helping them to form new partnerships which drive their careers forwards.”

Industry participants in previous Triangle programmes have included representatives from the likes of StudioCanal, Salt, the BFI, Film4 and Pathe.

“The process has really worked for our project and the industry meetings were productive and opened new doors. The networking was particularly well set up and in a way that generated a great sense of camaraderie across the entire group,” noted Triangle 2013 participant Nicola Clayton, producer at Sodalite Films.
