Inside Pictures will take you to the heart of the film industry and give you a 360-degree understanding of the global business of film.

The Inside Pictures 2021 programme is more essential now than ever before.

If you have been considering Inside Pictures but are curious as to of how the programme has adapted in response to the pandemic, we would encourage you to read some of the testimonials of the IP 2020 alumni, who found the experience to be very rewarding.

Inside Pictures is now in its 18th year. It is an intensive film business training and leadership skills development programme presented by the National Film & Television School. Supported by Creative Europe and ScreenSkills, the programme is for film & TV industry executives from all disciplines (sales, distribution, marketing, finance, legal and business affairs, development, production, post-production, special effects) and is designed to develop the practical knowledge, skills and high-level contacts needed to lead successful businesses.

“It’s all about the people. The class of 2020, even though we haven’t all yet met in person, is already really close. The very nature of the course encourages you to become a unit – and I why I wanted to do IP”
Emily Gotto, Shudder, Alumni 2020
“Inside Pictures is a life-saver in such a tumultuous (Covid-challenged) year. It has not only provided lots of learning, but a real camaraderie with fellow producers and execs who have largely been isolated due to global circumstances.”
Arno Hazebroek, Sampsonic Media, Alumni 2020
“Inside Pictures was an eye-opening, game-changing experience and the starting point of 19 new friendships that I am sure will last a long, long time. It was an inspirational, suberbly organized and perfectly planned program that I will only ever recommend to people that I like very, very much…”
Sol Bondy, Alumni 2018
“We have always been determined that Inside Pictures will be driven by practitioners, not teachers.”
Michael Kuhn, Qwerty
“Inside Pictures is an accolade acknowledged across the industry as indicating that a person is ready and prepared for business.”
Christos Michaels, Lee & Thompson, Speaker / Alumni 2004-5
“It was a fantastic networking experience and my classmates have become important colleagues and friends. It provides a network beyond your job or any specific film you might work on.”
Andrew Orr, Independent Film Company, Speaker / Alumni 2017
“It takes decades to accumulate the knowledge the participants are fed within a couple of months of the training.”
Kęstutis Drazdauskas, ARTBOX, Alumni 2018
“Inside Pictures has broadened my view, deepened my understanding and extended my network in a way I couldn’t have hoped for – it’s rare that my expectations are met, IP went well beyond. And to top it all off, it is exceptionally well run.”
Henning Kamm, REAL FILM Berlin GmbH, Alumni 2016
“Inside Pictures is the best place to learn about the current landscape in the rapidly changing international film and TV business. The participants, speakers, tutors, alumni and the people running Inside Pictures are at the top level of the industry thus providing a network of incredible value”
