Film Council Development Fund changes

Tanya Seghatchian, Head of the Development Fund at UK Film Council, has announced changes to the way the Fund will work. Writers will now be entitled to apply as individuals, without needing to have a producer or director attached to a project.

There are two programmes through which money will be awarded:
  • The First Feature Film Development Programme – which aims to identify and support emerging filmmakers (including screenwriters)
  • The Feature Film Development Programme – a dedicated industry funding programme for producers, production companies and filmmakers, with a demonstrable track record.
One-off "Signature Awards" will also be made to "world-class writers and directors".

Full details are available on the Film Council website.
