Interested in a career in documentary filmmaking?

Are you aged 18-25 and interested in documentary filmmaking? Working in partnership with The Grierson Trust, First Light is offering free places on a new Second Light training Lab which will concentrate on documentary filmmaking. (First Light work with young people from a variety of backgrounds, developing skills in media production, and are based in Birmingham.)

This is a great opportunity for new entrants, aged 18-25, to work with experienced professionals to begin a career in documentary production.

The Lab will be held in Birmingham for 3 consecutive days (week beginning 28 May 2012) and participants will then attend Sheffield Doc Fest as part of their training and development.

Reasonable travel expenses will be provided to the workshops in Birmingham, as well as lunch. Travel to, and accommodation at the festival will also be covered.

There’s more information here on the First Light website which includes the downloadable application form.

Deadline for applications: 12 noon, 26 April 2012
