Birds Eye View’s highly acclaimed flagship film-business training programme Filmonomics will return in January 2016, with continued focuses on developing confidence, facing failure and rejection and trend-forecasting for storytelling and future audiences. Supported by Creative Skillset, Filmonomics was created in association with former Screen International editor-in-chief Colin Brown, author of the Filmonomics blog for

The bespoke programme is targeted at established women and BAME film practitioners, and is designed to bridge the gap between development and distribution, mixing industry knowledge with behind the scenes networking and discussions on vital topics such as finance, teams, marketing, exhibition and audience development. One of the key aspects of the programme is the focus on the individual with sessions focusing on increasing confidence.

Filmonomics is aimed at established creative talent. Individuals should have a feature film (fiction or doc) or TV credit or substantial body of shorter form work. At least one participant in a team proposal must have a feature film or TV credit.

The programme fee is £300 and will give you  access to 12 curated sessions over 7 months on mainly evenings and weekends, to fit around the standard working schedule. All sessions will be based in London. The sessions will cover a full range of subjects and speakers across the value chain that are as much career focused as project based.

There are 3 full bursaries available from Birds Eye View. If you would like to apply for a bursary, there is allocated space on the application form to outline your case for extra financial support.

Deadline for applications: Friday 06 November
