Distant Voices Academy a community interest charity serves as a beacon of opportunity for young people, especially those from non-privileged backgrounds, aspiring to build careers in the dynamic world of TV and film production. Our organisation offers a comprehensive set of services to empower these individuals and ensure they have a fair shot at success in the industry. Our impact is profound, as we bridge the gap between aspiration and achievement, opening doors and transforming lives.

Our primary beneficiaries are young people, particularly those who lack the privileges often associated with entering the TV and film industry. We specifically target those who may not have had access to traditional pathways into the field, aiming to level the playing field.

Distant Voices Academy provides a range of services tailored to the needs of our beneficiaries. We offer intensive training programmes, mentorship, networking opportunities, and real-world experience, all guided by our team of seasoned industry professionals. These services equip young people with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to thrive in the competitive world of TV and film production.


Our work matters because it creates a profound impact on the lives of our beneficiaries. By breaking down barriers and providing opportunities for young people from diverse backgrounds, we are not only nurturing fresh talent but also enriching the industry with fresh perspectives and voices. Our impact extends beyond individual success stories; it contributes to a more inclusive and representative media landscape. In essence, we are inspiring and preparing the next generation of storytellers, making the industry accessible to all and ensuring that the stories we see on screen truly reflect the diverse world we live in.
