BFI NETWORK is a nationwide collaboration to develop filmmaking talent. We help new writers, directors and producers on the way to their first feature.
Every year, we invest £2.5 million of National Lottery funding in new and emerging filmmakers. Since September 2013, this has meant:
- funding for over 300 shorts,
- support for 80 feature developments,
- right now, eleven filmmakers have completed their first feature.
The work we've supported has featured in major international film festivals and attracted award nominations, including three BAFTAs and an Oscar®.
