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 Production Service. 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 North East Screen Crew Academy.
Our Comedy Hot House champions regional comedy talent on and off screen.
Our programme is funded by North East Screen Industries Partnership.
