BFI Doc Society Features Fund

BFI Doc Society Features Fund

The BFI Doc Society Fund aims to develop storytellers from all parts of the UK, backing feature projects with bold cultural and social ambitions. We welcome documentary funding applications from both new and established filmmakers. Our documentary funding can support feature projects from their early stages through to completion, helping filmmakers to realise their projects onscreen.

We expect applications for features to be made by the producer on your project (or, if there is more than one producer, the lead producer) although, in appropriate circumstances, we may consider applications from a director without a separate producer, but only in the very early stages of a project. We are happy to facilitate introductions to producers if needed.

While we do welcome films intended for multi-platform release and looking to push the boundaries of documentary storytelling, we are unable to provide funding for filmed productions such as a theatre show, filmed sporting or music event, artist installation work, or material intended primarily for broadcast television

Deadline: 9 July
