BFI NETWORK is a collaboration between the BFI, national film organisations and leading venues and cultural organisations around the UK, including the five English Film Hubs of the BFI Film Audience Network.
The ambition is to ensure all aspiring talent across the UK can access support, as well as benefit from signposting to the full scope of funding and training opportunities available.
Regional BFI NETWORK Talent Executives have been appointed in the English Hubs to give greater guidance to new and emerging talent where they live.
Short Film Funding.
Short Film Funding is for fiction shorts, in both live action and animation, and provides grants to support the production costs of short films.
Early Development Funding.
For new writers, with exciting, bold ideas — particularly those who have not yet teamed up with a producer.
BFI have five core priorities that they use in their assessment of applications to the Film Fund.
