RiseUp Programme




What Is RiseUp?

The RiseUp Programme is where our SetReady Graduates have the opportunity to independently write, produce and shoot their own short film.

Successful applicants will come together in April 2021, create a film idea and begin the pre-production process. Meeting virtually, you will plan and prepare everything you need to shoot your film, before returning to Greenwich in August for production.


Films will then be screened nationally by our Partner ODEON Cinemas.

You must be a Blue Card Member & have completed the SetReady programme to secure your place

"The National Youth Film Academy helped with funding, cast and crew. And we are now showcasing our film across the world in many festivals"  - JOE ARCHER, DIRETOR - ON IN 15 


Programme dates fit around academic studies


Your Film Showcased

This is a chance for our Members to prove themselves and rise to the challenge of independently creating their own film which will be screened across the UK at ODEON Cinemas.


Successful graduates will establish themselves as a member with the potential to be an Emerging Talent in the industry.

'We build, grow and accelerate career confidence in film ' ​
