WFTV has an extensive database of past and potential mentors who are keen to pass on their skills and experience to the next generation. Once mentees have been selected for the scheme they are hand-matched with an experienced industry figure who commits to spending at least six hours with their mentee over six months. Mentors are drawn from across the film and TV industry
