ScreenWorks, funded by the Department for Communities through Northern Ireland Screen and delivered by Into Film, is an exciting scheme to help young people in Northern Ireland aged 14-19 learn more about careers in the screen industries through hands-on work experience opportunities.

Placements with ScreenWorks offer young people unparalleled access to industry professionals on 3-5 day work placement across all five screen sectors - Film, Television, Animation, Gaming and Visual Effects.

Programmes take place throughout the academic year, and will include:

  • Costume Design
  • Production Design
  • Storyboarding & Concept Art
  • Prosthetics
  • Make-Up
  • Visual and special effects
  • Production Accountancy
  • Animation

Young people can apply to their preferred placement by completing an application form and emailing it to screenworks@intofilm.org. Participants are encouraged to apply directly, rather than through a teacher or parent.
