Change Awards

Funding for screen-based companies to benefit the wider workforce

As part of our Covid-19 relief efforts, Ffilm Cymru is inviting applications for interest free Change Award loans from Wales-based production companies with a demonstrable track record in feature film, and at least one production that is viable to progress into production within the next 6 months. That production may be in any screen form including film, TV, animation, interactive or game.

Companies can apply for up to £40,000, interest free, with a 12-month repayment holiday from full receipt of funds.

This finance is offered at company level, rather than being an investment in individual productions. It is intended to support both those successful applicant companies through these challenging times, and to support change. 

That change is focused on:

  1. Inclusively pushing out support for the wider workforce, to benefit individuals who may be working as freelancers, sole traders or operate loan-out companies and to ensure that opportunities for trainees continue. This is reflected in the funding criteria and conditions of these awards; and
  2. To support companies into production to unlock wider opportunities for job creation.
