Talent Development Funding
We're here to nurture the Midland's new wave of filmmaking talent; to support narrative fiction writers, directors and producers at the start of their careers with original stories to tell and inspired approaches to their craft.
We can support your projects with funding by contributing to production costs on short fiction films of up to 15 minutes, or by supporting the early development stages of feature films. Funded projects will also benefit from creative and professional guidance provided by our Midlands based BFI NETWORK Talent Executive.
Short Film Funding.
Grants of up to £15,000 to support the production costs of fiction films, in both live action and animation, which are 15 minutes or less.
Early Development Funding.
Support for treatments and research for features in early development
BFI have five core priorities that they use in their assessment of applications to the Film Fund.
