UK Film Focussed Activity at International Festivals, Markets and other Platforms

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

In addition to existing festival related support schemes, such as the Film Export Fund, 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.
