WHAT WE DO
Screen Central’s training activity aims to develop skills, increase knowledge and affect behaviours that will lead to success for those working across the breadth of the screen industries in the West Midlands region. We run workshops, mentoring schemes and bring top industry speakers to our events. We recently were commissioned by Creative Skillset to run a bootcamp to help new entrants into High End TV Drama.
Screen Central works with other organisations to create and support a strategic framework for filmmaking in the Midlands but always with a mind to reaching out to the wider national and international communities. Screen Central sits on the board of the West Midlands Screen Bureau, which shares the principle that local screen creatives deserve to have an eco-system that allows them to work productively in the region.
Screen Central hosts free monthly networking events in conjunction with Shooting People and Birmingham Film Forum, which also attracts industry professionals from outside the region. Three times a year the event moves to The Mockingbird Theatre so that Screen Central members have a chance to see their work on a big screen. A key mission of ours is to connect up screen creatives and foster collaboration.
