Cinemagic Announce BFI Film Academy Network 2017/18
03 Aug 2017 : Katie McNeice
Applications are now open for the training initiative, which is run for teens aged 16-19 from Northern Ireland.

The deadline is Wednesday September 6th and shortlisted applicants will be called for interview on 12th-13th September 2017.

Twenty participants are selected annually to work on short films which are showcased at Cinemagic, alongside training to equip the young filmmakers with the knowledge, skills, insight, confidence and practical training to help lay strong foundations for their pursuit of a career in the film industry.

Past participants on the programme have gone on to participate in the new ‘Star Wars’ film and ‘Game of Thrones’ as well as working with the BBC, Disney and Red Bull to name a few.

Many industry professionals have shared their skills with participants and met with them to talk about their careers. Just a small selection of these includes: Mark Huffam (Saving Private Ryan), Ryan Rowe (Charlie’s Angels), William Mc Gregor (Poldark) and Michael Lennox (Boogaloo and Graham).

The 2017/18 BFI Film Academy Network Programme delivered by Cinemagic will offer another impressive range of masterclasses, Cinemagic Juries, on-set film training and access to top industry professionals throughout the course.

Lia Campbell, Past Participant:
“From being part of the BFI Film Academy delivered by Cinemagic I got the opportunity to take part in the week long BFI Scotland Residential in Edinburgh two years ago. My self-written and directed short film ‘Iridescence’ came runner up in Cinemagic’s Young Filmmaker 2016. From this I built a successful portfolio to be accepted into IADT Dublin National Film School to study Film Production. In Summer 2017 I was trainee A.D on Cinemagic’s feature film, ‘Grace and Goliath’ and mentored by industry professionals 1st A.D Richard Harris (Skins, The Lost Kingdom) and 2nd A.D Graham Kinniburgh (Game of Thrones, The Frankenstein Chronicles).”

Chloe Langton, Past Participant:
“The BFI Film Academy is really where my film education and career began. I was so inspired by the master classes we attended leading up to making our films, especially Gareth Ellis-Unwin (Oscar winning producer of The King’s Speech). I really found out through the Academy that I too wanted to become a producer. Since then I have gone on to graduate from Queen’s University with a 2:1 in Drama and Film, I have produced several short film and I have worked on Cinemagic’s award-winning short film Delicate Things as a production assistant. Overall, the BFI Film Academy really gave me the confidence to pursue a career in film.”
