Support and funding for film businesses
Creative England has confirmed that applications for £5,000 business planning grants via its Film Enterprise Fund remain open.
Film Enterprise aims to improve the growth and sustainability of film-related businesses outside of Greater London. The funder wishes to work with companies to develop a plan for funding and support that is most appropriate to the needs and aspirations of the individual business.
The non-recoupable grants are intended to help applicants focus on their business planning and strategy. This may include acquiring specialist expertise, knowledge and contacts that will help refine their business proposition.
Applicants must be actively trading in the English regions (outside of Greater London). The business proposal must include as a significant component (or a combination of) the following: film development; film production; film distribution; film sales; or other film-related activity.
Applications continue to be accepted on a rolling basis.
