We’re here to nurture the South West’s new wave of filmmaking talent and to support writers, directors and producers at the start of their careers with original stories to tell and inspired approaches to their craft.
We can support your projects with funding by contributing to production costs on short films, or by supporting the early development stages of feature films. Funded projects will also benefit from creative and professional guidance provided by our Bristol based BFI NETWORK Talent Executive Alix Taylor. There are many ways we also support talent who are not yet in a position to apply for funding – find out how below.
