The Film Fund is the production and development heart of the BFI. We support filmmakers in the UK who are emerging or world class and capable of creating distinctive and entertaining work.
On 1 April 2011, the BFI became the Lottery distributor for film funding. The Film Fund has now transferred to the BFI and all applications can be made here.
All applications completed and submitted to the UK Film Council by 12 noon on 31 March 2011 were transferred to the BFI on 1 April 2011. All future correspondence regarding applications will be from the BFI and subsequent funding decisions will be made by the Film Fund as part of the BFI.
An Online Application Account (IGAM Account) is created to allow access to the Online Film Fund Application Form. If you have such an Account it will have transferred to the BFI on 1 April. However, the link to access your account, as well as your log-in details, will remain the same. You can still access any completed online applications submitted to the UK Film Council through your Online Application Account: www.grantrequest.com/SID_772.
