Making Films

BFI NETWORK are here to nurture the South West’s new wave of filmmaking talent and to support writers, directors and producers who have original stories to tell and inspired approaches to their craft.

We can support your projects by contributing to production costs on short films, or by supporting the development of a feature film treatment document. Funded projects will also benefit from creative and professional guidance provided by our Bristol-based BFI NETWORK Talent Executives Nadia Attia and Jess Wheeler. There are also many ways we support talent who are not yet ready to apply for BFI funding.
