We can support people working behind the scenes anywhere along the film and television value chains. In the past this has included financial assistance with:

  • Production and development finance
  • Post production and festival distribution
  • Living and travel expenses
  • Childcare
  • Tuition fees
  • Short training programmes
  • Secondments

This is not a definitive list and we welcome enquiries to discuss your particular proposal prior to application.


Awards are made to individuals rather than teams, projects or organisations.

There are usually between eight and twelve awards made each application round of up to £5,000 per recipient.

Funding cannot be provided retrospectively.
