Innovate Limerick through Film in Limerick has partnered with Gorm Media to launch a new diversity initiative to attract new workers to the film and TV industry. Supported by Screen Skills Ireland, the initiative responds to the under-representation of people from culturally and ethnically diverse communities working in Irish filmmaking, and the barriers faced by such individuals as they try to launch and progress their careers.
Diverse Screen is a free programme that aims to support individuals to gain their first job in film and TV.
The initiative launches next month (07 October) with a series of introductory webinars on working in the industry.
Over eight weekly online events, there will be the chance to meet with a range of experienced film crew who will talk about what they do on set and how to break into the industry.
