how to raise a budget?


I have written/directed/produced 5 short films, and by the end the year my involvement in short film productions as either a director, writer or producer will total 9 short films.

I now feel capable to really progress and start making features. I have a script that I think wouldn't need any more than 60k-80k to be produced, how would I go about raising the budget?

I know there are competitions and Funds with the BFI but these are highly competitive and chances of getting these are pretty low so whilst I will still apply, how can I go about approaching financiers, production companies or lone producers?

Thanks for your help!
