Filmmaker Amma Asante (Belle, A United Kingdom) is offering two female directors the opportunity to shadow her on the set of her next film project for a few days.  Only the first 200 applications will be considered for this opportunity.  Additional information can be found directly on her website on July 1st.  So mark your calendars and keep checking back for updates to make sure that you can be considered for this AMAZING opportunity.

The below message from Amma Asante has been written on her site, and can be found HERE.


Dear Aspiring Directors,

Thank you for visiting this page.

I was blown away by the response to my tweets announcing my search for 2 female directors to shadow me on the set of my next film project for a few days. I understand the drive to obtain experience on set because such opportunities for women in particular, are limited.

Please note, this is not an Assisting/Assistant role. It is a chance to Shadow and observe a director at work and over the course of a few days. How much prior experience you have will not be the key – but your determination and dedication to being a director will.

The successful applicants will also have access to ask questions of Heads of Department and crew in all areas of production at appropriate times.

Information on how to apply for these opportunities will be available on this website from July 1st 2016.

Because it will only be myself and two others on my team helping me make the decision, we can only consider the first 200 applications received. So time will be of the essence in making your submission.

It’s not possible for us to answer individual questions on Twitter in relation to this, or emails sent, so please check back here where all relevant information will be provided.

Again, I understand the great need for opportunities such as this one – which is why I will offer shadowing opportunities on each film when possible and viable.

With love
