Skills to Film launch weekend

Skills to Film weekend at Pinewood

This weekend, Pinewood joined forces with ScreenSkills to launch the Skills to Film initiative.

We welcomed 66 experienced, local people for two days of panels and workshops with senior figures from across film. Attendees, who are already skilled in their particular field, were able to learn more about the industry and how they could transfer their skills to much needed roles in film production.

Skills to Film offered attendees an introduction to the film industry with a view to helping them find roles, with a particular focus on five areas in production - art, locations, costume, construction and accounts.

We look forward to welcoming them back for a networking event at Pinewood Studios on Wednesday 26 June. This is an opportunity for Skills to Film attendees to introduce themselves to production crew from across the departments.

Access to a directory of all attendees will be given to productions based at Pinewood. This is a pilot scheme which ScreenSkills are hoping to launch with other major studios in the UK, including Shepperton.
