New Mentoring Scheme For Cinematographers


The British Society of Cinematographers, Association of Camera Operators and ScreenSkills have come together to create a brand new mentoring programme. The new initiative has been exclusively designed to provide support to cinematographers & camera operators from groups who are under-represented in the screen industries.

The programme will become part of the ScreenSkills Mentoring Network supported by the BFI, awarding National Lottery funds, as part of its Future Film Skills strategy.

Award-winning directors of photography and camera operators from the membership of the BSC and ACO in the UK will mentor 20 individuals in the inaugural round of the programme developed by the BSC education committee with ScreenSkills.

Mentees who wish to be considered should apply here by 8 July. BSC and ACO members will have a dedicated process for volunteering and will be involved in the matching process with a mentee. They can request access to this mentor registration form by contacting  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
