Funny Features

Delivered by Glasgow Film Festival through the BFI Creative Challenge Fund, made possible with National Lottery Funding.

Are you developing a comedy feature? Is this your first or second feature? Our new talent development lab, Funny Features, is designed to support producers, writers and writer/directors looking to develop and finance comedy projects.

Over 6 months, successful creative teams will gain access to one-to-one consultancy sessions, online workshops and mentoring. This will be a rare opportunity for comedy projects to be developed in a constructive and practical development environment where they will be able to participate in peer-to-peer and professional feedback.

  • Story Workshop & Consultancy
  • Audience Design Consultancy
  • Pitching Workshop
  • Finance & Film Packaging Intensive Workshops
  • Mentorship
  • Pitching Sessions

Teams will leave Funny Features with extensive knowledge of the film finance landscape, heightened confidence in navigating the marketplace, a clearer understanding of their audience and market placement, a widened network of decision-makers, a film finance package, a final draft of their script and a project ready to enter the international marketplace to being securing financing.
