The NFTS is looking for talented filmmakers that are either women, non-binary, transgender (men and women), those from racially diverse backgrounds, deaf, disabled or neurodiverse and or from a lower-social economic background, to apply for the Prime Video Directors Workshop. We are hoping to attract candidates from across the UK.

The Prime Video Directors Workshop is a ground-breaking 12-month course designed specifically to increase the number of people from historically excluded groups and those from lower social economic backgrounds working in screen directing. Taking the form of an intensive training course in narrative filmmaking, the six participants selected to take part will each create their own original short film during the workshop, which will welcome a new cohort in April 2024.
If you are currently working professionally in screen directing and want to advance your career to the next level, the Prime Video Directors Workshop is the opportunity for you!
