One of the (many) strengths of the Guiding Lights mentoring programme is the network it has created among participants (both mentees and mentors), industry friends, sponsors, peers and partners.

The strength and vibrancy of this network was evident on Thursday evening, in the bustling Benugos bar at the BFI Southbank, where current and previous Guiding Lights mentees gathered to catch up, talk film, and get a little merry.

It was a fantastic turnout, with participants present from across all four years of the scheme and 100% attendance from the twelve newest mentees – particularly impressive given that six of them had travelled from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Liverpool!

With Lighthouse’s Head of Film, Emily Kyriakides and Guiding Lights Coordinator, Becca Ellson making introductions, and many of those present already familiar with each other, the room was soon alive with film industry chatter. In fact, people seemed to be getting on so well, it won’t be long till we see more inter-mentee collaborations.
