NTFS BAME Leadership Programme


Do you have the potential to be a future leader in the film industry?

The National Film and Television School in partnership with Creative Skillset, have launched the BAME LEADERSHIP Programme, a new six month programme to rigorously encourage diverse representation in the film industry, bringing on the next generation of diverse talent working at Executive level in production, distribution, sales and exhibition.

They are looking for 8 talented emerging film business executives from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background with a proven track record and the potential to lead in their industry to take part.

As one of the 8 successful applicants you will undertake an intense six month programme of individual training, coaching and mentoring allowing you to rapidly develop your career confidence in today's industry whilst also building your leadership skills.

Programme Outline

The six month programme will start in October 2015, ending March 2016.

The programme will kick off with a 2 day immersive bootcamp for the group as a whole - sessions will focus on building and honing leadership skills. You will gain a wide ranging insight into the financing, sale business affairs, marketing, domestic and international marketing/distribution of film, including up-to-date analysis of current market and financing conditions, and the practical and negotiation skills required to facilitate a project's success.

Participants will be matched with a mentor (a senior executive) for the duration of the initiative, and will be allocated sessions with a career coach.

In addition to the above, each participant will be able to access a dedicated bespoke training pot to meet their specific training needs and to attend additional courses and events between September and the close of the initiative.


This course is aimed at changing the representation of people from diverse backgrounds at influential levels in the film business. We are looking for applications from talented emerging executives from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background with a proven track record (at least 2–3 years’ experience) of working at Executive level in film production, distribution, sales or exhibition and the potential to lead in their industry.

Please note this is a Film and Business programme and is therefore not targeted at creative talent (producers, writers, directors).


The bootcamp will be held at Ingenious Media, London, W1F

Locations for bespoke training will take place at the NFTS, London and other locations.

Number of places: 8

Fees: £1000

Deadline for applications July 24 2015
