BFI NETWORK have launched their exciting new funding offer for short film productions and early feature ideas earlier this week: https://network.bfi.org.uk/. The headline notes are that the fund is open to live action and animation ideas, it’s rolling – so no deadlines! – and you can apply for up to £15,000 for short film production and £1,500 to develop an early feature idea.
Do make sure you have a read of the guidelines and familiarise yourself with the latest layout of the BFI NETWORK website so that you’re fully informed of the new funds and opportunities available to you. It’ll also gets you brownie points with Alice Ramsey, BFI NETWORK Talent Executive at Film Hub North!
Alice is based out of Showroom cinema but works as part of Film Hub North in the talent team. She is very keen to be visible across the region and accessible to writers, directors, producers, animators and artists so has organised one-on-one surgeries at the Showroom Café on Tuesday 15th May.
These surgeries are an opportunity for you to connect with Alice (and vice versa) and ask her any questions you may have about the BFI NETWORK, film funding, career and project advice, moving over from another discipline etc. The only requirements you need to be eligible for a surgery are:
– Based in the North of England
– Haven’t had a feature film produced and distributed
– A creative track record. This could be student work, or something created at a grassroots/non-professional level, and it may be in film, television, theatre or another artform.
– You need to be over 18 and not in full-time education

The booking system works on a first-come first-served basis, but don’t worry if you’re unable to book yourself onto a surgery this time around, there will be other opportunities across your region in the coming months.
