Host companies needed: FEDS Trainee Scheme 2017

The ICO are seeking applications from cinemas and film festivals from across the UK for the third year of their highly successful Film Exhibition, Distribution and Sales (FEDS) scheme.

Just 3% of employees in the film industry come from BAME backgrounds and less than 1% consider themselves to have a disability. This scheme aims to begin addressing these issues of representation and has already seen strong results in ongoing employment in the film industry.

ICO can offer five venues and festivals throughout the UK the chance to benefit from a full time entry-level member of staff for nine months from March to November 2017. The trainee will benefit from on the job experience in your venue, as well as building their skills and knowledge at intensive monthly training sessions.

The deadline for host company applications is Thursday 15 September (16.00). For more information and to apply please visit ICO’s website.
