Following the popularity of the BFI FAN Advice Sessions, Film Hub Scotland will now offer funding for free, extended mentorships to members.
Members will identify a key issue they are facing, and work through this over up to four sessions with an experienced advisor.
Single, half-day sessions will continue to be available through the FAN Advice Sessions. FHS Mentorships are appropriate for those who would benefit from a bit more time with their mentor, to explore broader issues or goals.
If you have a specific mentor in mind, you can name them on your application. However, this is not required. Film Hub Scotland can find a mentor who makes a good fit for your application. Mentors can be anyone from the film exhibition sector, including those involved in the Advice Sessions scheme (subject to availability).
Mentorship topics may include:
- Archive & Screen Heritage
- Audience Development
- Bid Writing/Fundraising
- Business Development
- Equality, Diversity, Inclusivity
- Public Speaking
- Technical Skills
- & more
Your mentor may be able to help you in multiple skill areas. Please try to focus your mentorship on a specific goal or problem, as this will make sessions much more productive.
