North East Screen (formerly Northern Film + Media) is the regional screen agency.

We develop and champion North East England as one of the UK’s leading film and TV production hubs where exceptional screen industry talent can live, create and work.

We support all incoming productions with crew, locations and facilities shooting anywhere in North East England through our free and invaluable Film Office. We work with Indie production companies based in the North East providing them with business and commission development support.

We offer talent and professional development support for home grown freelancers (writers, producer, directors and artist filmmakers). We connect experienced crew to job opportunities and, for those just starting out and wanting to work in film and TV, we run the NE Screen Crew Academy. We have an extensive crew database with regional crew of all levels. Find out more.

Our NE Screen Comedy Hot House champions comedy talent on and off screen.

Our Production Fund is now open to Expressions of Interest.

Our programme is funded by North East Screen Industries Partnership.

As production is increasing across the North East we are proud to see so many TV programmes filmed in our region. Take a look at the latest here.
