UK film-focused activity at international festivals, markets and other platforms

Supporting UK-focused activities at important international festivals, markets or through other platforms or events.

In addition to existing festival related support schemes, the BFI has dedicated a limited amount of support from its International Fund for industry facing initiatives promoting UK film and supporting the engagement of UK filmmakers with international counterparts.

Supporting UK-focussed activities at important international festivals, markets or through other platforms or events delivers the following benefits to UK film:

  • Helping to connect UK filmmakers (producers, writers, directors) with international counterparts;
  • Enhancing the profile of UK talent to international industry decision makers, and/or
  • Promoting the UK as a filmmaking destination or partner of choice (the Benefits).

The BFI has allocated funding of up to £50,000 from the International Fund towards this activity and we expect to make a very limited number of awards throughout the year.

There is no application deadline but we would encourage applicants to apply at least six months in advance of the initiative.
