Funding: The Film-makers’ Festival Fund (FFF) – Good Oportunity to Showcase you Film
The Film-makers’ Festival Fund (FFF) aims to support the development of London-based film-makers – assisting their promotional and marketing activity of completed short film projects at overseas festivals and markets.
FFF does not provide funding for development or production or for the production of promotional print materials, but was introduced to support film exhibition – getting London made films out to the international festival circuit.
Film London’s Film-makers’ Festival Fund provides:
• Travel grants for attendance at one of the named overseas festivals (see list below) where short films have been selected for official competition (excluding Audience Awards). NB: only one travel grant will be awarded per project
• A contribution towards the cost of striking a first 35mm short film print or production of a digital master (e.g. NTSC duping for North America) where required by an international festival for screening. NB. 35mm print awards are conditional on awardees attending the named festival
Who can apply?
• Applicants living in the London region – this must be provable by a utilities bill
• Individuals only – this must be either the director or producer of the film. In the case of artist film-makers represented by galleries or agents, the artist must apply in person
• A director or producer of a short film that is in competition in the list of qualifying festivals (see below)
This is a very popular fund and budgets are limited, so new applicants will be prioritised, as well applicants from under-represented groups within the UK film industry in line with Film London’s commitment to increase access and opportunity.
Individuals who have been given a Film-makers’ Festival Fund award in the previous financial year, or are in receipt of any other travel bursary, are not eligible to apply.
Awards from the Film-makers’ Festival Fund will be no more than a maximum of £300 towards print production costs and £250 for travel grants (outside of Europe) or £100 (within Europe).
