Regional Screen Scotland’s Local Film Festival Fund opened for applications from Wednesday April 20th 2016.
Festivals and organisations offering community cinema provision may apply for up to £3000 to support a film festival event taking place anytime before 31st January 2017.
A rolling programme of application is being instigated for the remainder of the year. Applications will be assessed on a six weekly basis.
In keeping with Regional Screen Scotland’s remit, applications should cater for areas of Scotland where communities cannot routinely access a cinema or where a local initiative would enhance their community, grow audiences for film and increase the knowledge, skills and capacity of the exhibition sector.
Examples of previously funded events can be found on the Regional Screen Scotland website.
First assessments will be made week commencing 23rd May 2016 and the final deadline for applications is 7th November 2016.
Please address any queries and submit applications by emailing Ginnie.
Guidelines and application forms are also available to download from the Regional Screen Scotland website.
