FLEX - New Creative Development Hub for Agile Storytellers

A ground-breaking development hub for screen talent from across the UK has been launched by Screen Yorkshire providing an opportunity for writers, producers and directors to explore story in an inspiring and progressive, platform neutral, space.

Screen Yorkshire has opened applications to its brand-new FLEX programme, developed in collaboration with the Screen Industries Growth Network. FLEX is a physical and online space for the best of the UK’s emerging creative talent to form agile storytelling partnerships. The programme will support the development of ideas and talent that can hop nimbly between platforms and formats, ready to pitch to the rapidly evolving screen marketplace.

Applications to Flex are open to writers, directors and producers to apply as individuals, writers may also apply as a writing duo. A minimum of one member of the creative team will be from Yorkshire and the Humber.

Screen Yorkshire is keen to encourage applications from those who may not have followed a traditional route into the screen industries or faced additional challenges accessing support and opportunities. Its fundamental goal is to work with talent that is inspired by the creative freedom afforded by FLEX and ready to innovate, to connect diverse stories with new audiences.
