Screen Yorkshire call for applications deadline 16 December

Received this recently and thought my followers might be interested:

Screen Yorkshire
Screen Yorkshire is seeking applications from UK wide writers, directors & producers for the fourth edition of its successful & unique film talent development programme, Triangle.

Triangle 2014 is a ten month development scheme that will develop new ‘triangles’ between writers, directors and producers within the UK film industry. This national scheme has been managed by Screen Yorkshire for three years and selects applicants who form teams, participate in a series of development workshops and are mentored by industry experts.

Triangle 2014 is supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund, which is funded by the National Lottery via the BFI, and through the Skills Investment Fund (SIF).

Triangle 2014 aims to create new collaborations from across the UK to develop projects the market wants. We are not just looking for emerging talent but also experienced writers, producers and directors who want to work with new partners and get new projects in front of high level film industry professionals.
The initial stage of Triangle 2014 involves five face to face days (within two compulsory sessions, one in Sheffield and the other in Leeds) of networking and workshops to build the teams. Some teams will then apply to Creative England’s iFeatures, six other teams will be selected to progress to the second stage of Triangle. After a third residential (held in Sheffield) three teams will make it to the final stages and are supported in developing their first draft script. 
Industry participation in previous Triangle programmes includes Studio Canal, Salt, The Works, Distrify, Vertigo, The Agency, United Agents, 2B Pictures, 104 Films, the BFI, Film4. Hanway Films, WestEnd Films, Pathe, and Altitude.
The deadline for writers, directors and producers is 5pm, Monday 16th December.
GUIDELINES - please read these before applying

“Triangle has proven itself to be a hugely successful scheme, providing significant support for writers, directors and producers from across the UK and helping them to form new partnerships which drive their careers forwards. We are very happy to be providing continued support for the scheme, now in its fourth year, and are excited to see the innovative new projects which will be developed as a result of it.” Dan Simmons, Head of Film at Creative Skillset
The programme is open to all filmmakers based in the UK, over 18 and not in full time education. The bulk of the programme activity will take place in the North of England, and while support is available towards accommodation and travel costs, the amount is of necessity limited.
