Screen Scotland has announced new ring-fenced film and TV development support for Scottish independents during COVID-19.
Independent film and TV production companies will be able to apply for support of between £3,000 and £50,000 to develop creative and ambitious projects over the next three to six months.
Two new funding routes are available – one for TV and the other for film project:
- The £500,000 Broadcast: Single Project Development Funding Route will support the development of work across live-action and animation. Covering both scripted and unscripted genres, the Fund will prioritise UK Network and SVOD (Subscription Video on Demand) focused TV projects with existing commissioner engagement and the potential to be multi-part and/or returning.
- The £500,000 Film: Single Project Development Funding Route will support the development of single feature film projects across live-action, animation and documentary.
Both funds are open for applications on Tuesday 14 April 2020.
