Century Films has a passion for new talent. We believe new talent is the lifeblood of the industry. Since its inception in 1995, Century Films has identified and nurtured aspiring directors and producers and has supported them in realising their first films.

Our track record in developing new talent is strong. Katie Bailiff, Century Film’s Head of Programmes, directed the first ever Alt-TV, (24 hours) and went on to executive produce the last ever Alt-TV, (Namesakes). Jonathan Smith, Zac Beattie and Morgan Matthews were all given their formative directing and producing opportunities at Century and have gone on to become some of the UK’s finest documentary-making talent. Their Century Films productions Make me Normal and Taxidermy; Stuff the World won and were nominated respectively for BAFTA’s.

We welcome strong ideas from aspiring directors for all broadcaster’s new talent Schemes.
