The BFI Network Short Film Fund – 7th June 2021

Grants of up to £15,000 are available to directors based in England to support the production costs of 15-minute short fiction films, in both live-action and animation.

The BFI Network Short Film Fund is intended to stimulate new ideas and stories from directors who haven’t yet directed a fiction feature film that has received UK distribution, and will support standalone projects including those that have the potential to be developed into other forms or formats (e.g., a feature film, content in serial form, etc).

The fund is run in partnership with the BFI Network Talent Executives who will work with filmmakers on the delivery of funded projects.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 7th June 2021.
