Ffilm Cymru Launches COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund

Ffilm Cymru Launches COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund

Non-repayable grants are available for those working in the film industry in Wales who have been financially hit by the coronavirus outbreak.

The COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund has been created to support Wales-born writers, directors, producers and film education practitioners that are experiencing financial hardship as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Applicants can apply for what they need – up to a maximum of £1,500 – whether or not they have received or are applying for COVID-19 related support from other organisations, or the UK or Welsh Governments and whether or not applicants have previously received funds from Ffilm Cymru.

Ffilm Cymru expects demand to be high and it may not be able to support everyone, so will be asking about other potential sources of income.

The deadline for applications is 15 May 2020.

More information about this funding opportunity and the application process is available on the GRANTfinder funding information platform.
