International co-productions

We allocate some of our funds to co-production awards, to support UK co-productions in which the majority of the creative input comes from one of the UK’s partner countries.

Priority will be given to projects where:

  • A world-class, non-British filmmaker wishes to engage with UK talent or cultural content
  • UK involvement enhances the international appeal of an exceptional project that has been originated outside of the UK
  • An international project gives an opportunity to an outstanding, emerging talent from the UK.

Applications for co-production funding are made in the usual way, as per the Film Fund’s production awards. Films supported in this way would still need to qualify as a British film as set out in our guidelines.

The co-production funding is not intended for documentaries, which will be considered through the documentary pitching strand.
