Earlier this week, Chief Executive Alison Gwynn and the team at North East Screen were honoured with the Special Recognition Award at the North East Culture Awards.
Alison and the team were praised for their commitment to the growth of the North East screen industry and the instrumental part they played in bringing record investment to the region’s screen industry.
Through the unique partnership with the BBC, all 12 local authorities and three combined authorities, North East Screen strive to deliver a programme of events and skills activity to grow and expand the North East screen industry.
