In partnership with the British Film Institute and hosted by Professor Jonathan Long and Professor Santiago Fouz Hernández in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Film & Television Careers Week offers a variety of talks and presentations from a wide range of careers within the film & television industry.

Professionals from across this diverse industry will lead nine on-line careers focused workshops that will help students explore future career options. Previous years events included speakers on Scriptwriting, Finance, Producing and Programming. This is your chance to meet someone working in these roles and to gain first-hand insights into what a career in Film & TV might be like.  

Please read on for further details of the sessions.
