Events and Career Development Opportunities from around the web

Self-isolation and the cancellation of work means that it’s more important than ever to stay in touch with the craft of directing, and the wider directing community.

While we at Directors UK are exploring ways to offer online Career Development opportunities and more for the benefit of our members, on this page we have collected some great resources that are already available from across the web.

From online film festivals and archives of director Q&As to mentoring and career development opportunities, there’s plenty here to explore — and we’ll be updating it regularly with the latest gems that we find.

If you’re looking for advice and resources on coping with Coronavirus from an employment and wellbeing perspective, head to our advice page.
