Film funding and bursaries can be incredibly tricky to find - that’s why we source the latest film grants for independent UK filmmakers and created this neat hub for you to secure funding for your next project. From documentary grants, to short film grants, to student film grants - all the way to major feature film funding and specific things like post-production grants; we make sure to keep you up to date with the latest opportunities.

Unlike other organisations, we don’t just list off the major grants from well-known organisations like the BFI Short Film Fund, the Sundance Documentary Fund and others, we research individual organisations, artist funds which apply to moving image, educational institutions and more to make sure you’re getting the full picture of what's out there.
