We will prioritise producers who have the greatest potential to contribute to the success of the industry, and who can clearly identify their need for support through public funding.
The deadline for applications is 6 January 2020, 11:59pm.
In order to apply, producers need to have made one distributed feature film or TV series, and no more than three. All applicants need to have a demonstrable ability to drive a project through development to production. Please check the eligibility criteria outlined in our guidelines carefully before beginning an application to the fund.
Producers who do not yet meet the criteria to apply may be eligible to apply to the BFI NETWORK Insight New Producer programme, a nine-month practical course which seeks to equip new producers with the confidence and ability to realise their creative and business ambitions. More detailed information on this programme will be available later in November.
Please ensure you have read the full funding guidelines before you complete the application form.
