BFI NETWORK England short film funding

For live action, animation and immersive/virtual reality.

This fund is open to filmmaking teams with directors based in England. It supports the production costs of standalone fiction films. These can be live action, animation or immersive/VR and must be no more than 15 minutes long. The fund is intended to stimulate new ideas and stories, so it doesn’t support adaptations of existing material, apart from of the writer’s own previous work.

If your project does not fit the criteria for this fund (for example, your director is based outside England, or your project is a documentary), use our funding finder page to find relevant opportunities.
