Documentary funding

The Film Fund is committed to supporting documentary filmmaking, and specifically documentary films with theatrical potential.

The BFI’s final round of documentary funding closed in May 2017 and we do not intend to run further documentary funding rounds directly.

We are seeking a partner to deliver the BFI Documentary Fund and hope to announce this partner by October 2017. Round one of submissions to the new partner should open within the first four months.
