Stage and Screen talent initiative: sign up now

Reading time: 2 minutes and 26 seconds

Directors UK has again partnered with Film London and the Park Theatre to renew our unique emerging talent initiative: Stage and Screen.

Following a successful six-month run in 2016 — which featured productions of Raising Martha, Chinglish and Killing Time, among others — we are thrilled to announced we are once again open for applications to Stage and Screen.

This initative is for film and television producers and directors who have a genuine interest in adapting stage projects for the screen and who wish to meet exciting creative talent from theatre.

From September 2017 – December 2017, Film London will select three producers and Directors UK will select three directors to attend a matinee of a new play at Park Theatre, located behind Finsbury Park tube station. After the performance, you will have the chance to network with the play’s talent and the theatre executive staff over tea and cake. Tickets costs and networking are covered by Stage and Screen.

Take a look at what other directors thought about being a part of the first season.

If selected, the play you’ll attend will be one of those listed below and cannot be exchanged for any other date. Also, if you’re selected your ticket is not transferable to anyone else without prior permission in writing from Film London (for producers) and Directors UK (for directors).

The plays in this season are:

What ShadowsThursday 28 September at 3pm
Fishskin Trousers – Thursday 19th October at 3.15pm
The RetreatThursday 9 November at 3pm
Daisy Pulls it OffThursday 14 December at 3pm

Selection of those taking part will be made approximately three weeks before each performance.

In order for us to be able to launch this initiative in good time, we would be grateful if you could sign up as quickly as possible. If you have attended Stage and Screen previously, but would like to be considered for future dates please let us know and we will add you to the new list.

For directors who’d like to be in with a chance of being selected please email events@directors.uk.com with a short bio and you will be placed on the list. Producers should contact stageandscreen@filmlondon.org.uk.
