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.

Now in its 13th year, Inside Pictures is an intensive film business training and leadership skills development programme presented by the National Film & Television School. Supported by Creative Europe and Creative Skillset, the programme is for film industry executives from all disciplines (development, production, post-production, special effects, sales, distribution, marketing, finance, legal and business affairs) and is designed to develop the practical knowledge, skills and high-level contacts needed to lead successful businesses.
“Inside Pictures provides participants with a unique insight into the global film business through its access to a wide range of industry experts. It’s an invaluable approach.”
Cameron McCracken, Pathé UK, Speaker
“What makes it different from anything else is the level at which the participants are at, they are already in the industry and already have achievements on their CV.”
Nik Powell, National Film and Television School
“Inside Pictures is a great course that gives applicants a terrific overview of the rapidly growing international film business – something I wish had been available to me early in my career.”
Andrew Cripps, IMAX, Speaker
“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
“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
“We found innovators working with different media and got interest from smart, commercial people who saw the value of the international connections we offered.”
Julia Short, Inside Pictures
“In Germany, it is largely a subsidised system but Inside Pictures was offering knowledge and know-how of working in a real industry. It was about the business.”
Wolfgang Behr, Aventin Filmproduktion GmbH, Speaker / Alumni
“I was an experienced producer when I applied to Inside Pictures in 2011 but the programme was a big part of my reaching the next level in my career as it really gives access to areas of the film industry, both in Europe and the US. I am now working on a number of European co-productions, where the experiences on the programme were very helpful.”
Bert Hamelinck, Caviar Content, Speaker / Alumni
