We are

Nexus Cast and Crew Network CIC

Since 2014, we have been facilitating industry panels, networking events, showcases and talent development opportunities for Midlands-based freelancers and artists pursuing careers in Film, TV, Theatre & Radio, with a prime focus on increasing accessibility to the arts.

We have approximately 2,000 members in our community who regularly attend our events and engage with us online, and we are extremely proud of all the successful projects, careers and regional activity that we have nurtured and supported.

In 2022, we became a CIC and are now seeking funds and sponsorship to implement a new strategy for a more hands-on programme catering to a wider variety of needs, with increased outreach and support on offer. We encourage companies and organisations to please reach out if you’d like to discuss possible collaborations and opportunities.

East vs West Midlands Showcase is Back!

– The Deets –

We are delighted to be hosting our second East vs West Midlands Showcase in May 2024 where we will be screening a fantastic selection of short films, half of which will represent the East Midlands with the other half representing the West.

This will be a friendly, supportive (and perhaps a little competitive) event bringing both of the UK’s Midlands regions together

The event will take place at Derby QUAD 1:30pm – 6pm on 4 May 2024, and will include our film screening and awards presentation followed by some networking time and our well-known Pitch Up opportunity, giving anyone at the event the chance to pitch themselves, a project or whatever they fancy to the collective talent & knowledge at the event.
