Production funding

We welcome production applications from new and established filmmakers. Priority will be given to projects and filmmaking teams that demonstrate a bold vision and creative excellence, and that are unlikely to be fully financed by the marketplace.

If your project is a first feature and budgeted under £2,000,000, please refer to our first features page.

Applications for production funding can be made to the Film Fund at any time and you should expect to receive an initial response from us within six to eight weeks.

We do make every effort to ensure that our application process is fair and as transparent as possible. Sadly, given the volume of applications we receive, we are not able to provide feedback on projects that we have decided not to progress.

Please ensure you have read the full information document for our funding before you complete the application form, and take careful note of the changes in our funding elaborated on above.

We cannot fully finance the production of a feature film, regardless of the budget, and therefore most applications requesting full financing, or full financing except for the UK film tax relief, will be rejected automatically.
