Partner News - BFI NETWORK

By Performance

BFI NETWORK is a UK-wide talent development programme for new and emerging film writers, directors and producers. The programme, made possible through National Lottery funding, is delivered by its national partners Short Circuit, Ffilm Cymru Wales and Northern Ireland Screen alongside the five English film hubs of the BFI Film Audience Network.

BFI NETWORK provides short film and early feature development funding, industry-backed professional development and networking support to filmmakers of all ages.

Short film funding is available to filmmakers across the UK, providing grants of around £15,000. Head of BFI NETWORK James Weddup says: “BFI NETWORK support is often the first time the funded filmmakers are able to make a film at this budget level, and the programme seeks to invest strategically in filmmakers to propel them to the next stage of their careers.”
