Funding is available to debut directors to support original live action and animation feature filmmaking in the UK.
The funding is intended to support original live action and animation feature filmmaking in the UK by debut directors. The outcomes of the fund and priorities on which applications will be assessed include:
- Equity, diversity and inclusion: addressing under-representation in perspective and representation, talent and recruitment, agency and opportunities, widening the range of voices and audiences served.
- Impact and audience: supporting projects with a strong cultural or progressive impact for audiences.
- Talent development and progression: supporting early career filmmakers (producers, writers and directors) and projects with a reasonable proportion of early career cast and crew.
- Risk: supporting projects that take creative risks.
- UK-wide: increasing the number of projects and filmmakers outside London and the South East, looking at location and representation.
- Environmental sustainability: addressing sustainability both creatively and practically.
