Ffolio

A new platform for creative talent in Wales

Ffolio is an exciting new partnership between Ffilm Cymru, BBC Wales, BBC Arts and the Arts Council of Wales. It will offer training, mentoring and BBC commissioning opportunities to creatives, with a demonstrable track record in another discipline, based in Wales and without a professional director's credit within film or TV.

If you’re a dancer, blogger, musician, writer, photographer, graffiti artist, games designer, puppeteer, circus performer, animator or are professionally creative in any form, we want to hear from you.

If shortlisted, you’ll receive training, bespoke support to develop your short film ideas and bursaries for costs such as travel, childcare or an interpreter.
 


In Brief

Film duration: 90 seconds to 5 minutes.
Number of ideas that will be commissioned:
up to 16 short films in total.
Ideas:
Your idea for round 1 of Ffolio should push the boundaries of film, whether that be through story or experimentation with sound, image or structure. It might include animation, documentary, scripted drama or performance. However it should be achievable within a production budget of £5,000.

Deadline for applications: 1st May 2020

Projects that are longlisted for Ffolio round 2 will be invited to attend a two day Ffolio Bootcamp on 19/06/20 & 20/06/20, at venue in Wales, TBC.
