Guiding Lights film mentoring scheme now open for submissions


Guiding Lights 7 is now open for applications!

First launched in 2006, Guiding Lights is Europe’s most prestigious film mentoring scheme. Majority funded by Creative Skillset, the programme supports upcoming filmmakers and professionals through high-level mentoring, complemented by a range of training and networking activities.

Each mentee is matched with a leading film industry professional who provides advice and guidance over a 9-month period. Previous mentors include Danny Boyle, Barbara Broccoli, Sam Mendes, Alison Owen, Alex Garland, Nira Park, Joanna Hogg, Paul Greengrass, Abi Morgan and Kenneth Branagh.

Alongside the one-to-one mentoring, a number of training events take place. Further access to industry professionals is facilitated by an online networking facility. You can find out more about the programme through The Experience.

In addition to the directors, writers and producers supported through Guiding Lights, this year we are again partnering with Film Hub South East – part of the BFI Film Audience Network – to support the participation of two exhibition professionals from the South East.

In order to Apply for Guiding Lights 7 please ensure you have read the Guidelines and FAQs and apply via the website.
