Tom Holmes

Film Trainee Finder Lead, ScreenSkills

I am an upbeat and positive individual who is passionate about the power of film as a learning tool and being able to connect aspiring filmmakers with the necessary tools and contacts to empower them to achieve their goals. I currently lead on Film Trainee Finder at Creative Skillset, a nationwide training program which matches feature films being shot across the UK with Trainees across all different craft areas of film production, allowing them to develop and hone their craft whilst working on a live production set.

I was born and raised in Brussels, Belgium where I attended an international school and grew up in a multicultural environment. After graduating from university in London, within a short space of time I gained a wide range of experience in film development, production, distribution and film festivals in the UK and US, working alongside some of the industry’s most renowned producers and talent. I now focus on the intersection of film and education within the industry, combining the two things I am most passionate about.

When not in the office or at the cinema, I can often be found out of London, on a hiking trip, or travelling to a new city each month.
