Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund

Our new Emergency Relief Fund is for writers, directors, producers and film education practitioners that are experiencing financial hardship as a result of Covid-19.

Non-repayable grants of up to £1,500 can be requested. We expect demand to be high and we may not be able to support everyone, so we will be asking about other potential sources of income. However, we invite you to ask for what you need – regardless of whether or not you have received other income from us through supported applications, or if you are receiving or applying for other third-party sources of funding.

Application Deadline: 15th May

Applications will be considered in-the-round, rather than on a first-come basis.
