Born Digital – new short grant for filmmaking talent

Website: https://network.bfi.org.uk/news-and-features/industry-insights/born-digital-new-and-emerging-talent-search

Born Digital is an exciting opportunity for new and emerging filmmakers to realise their first broadcast project, with grants to be awarded to fund, or partly fund, up to 12 short films. The BBC, in partnership with the BFI, is now searching for short films to showcase the creativity and diversity of the next generation of film talent in the UK today. We are commissioning 10-12 short creative films from new and emerging filmmakers: from Artists of this Born Digital generation, and from those who remember the pre-internet period and have seen its subsequent impact on the world. If successfully selected by an expert panel you will be awarded a grant of between £3000 and £5000 towards the creation or completion of your original film. There will be the opportunity to have your film screened at BFI Southbank and for it to be broadcast on BBC Four in early Spring 2019 to mark the anniversary of the World Wide Web Foundation. Films submitted must be between 4 – 12 minutes in length. To apply you must be a UK resident aged 18 or over and either be a student or a new/emerging filmmaker. You are unable to apply if you’ve received a key creative credit on a broadcast TV programme, a feature length film, or more than three professional short films.
