Proud to be an industry friend of the Film and TV Charity

Every year the Film and TV Charity support thousands of people in film, TV and cinema to address and overcome personal and professional obstacles. Some have needed to rebuild their confidence, get past a crisis, develop a new skill, or realise a dream project, whilst others have needed more practical support, such as an emergency grant, or access to mental health support.
