British Council Film is committed to showcasing new UK film talent to audiences around the world and has a long tradition of supporting new and emerging filmmaking talent.
Enabling festivals to programme new, high-quality work from the UK is at the heart of British Council Film. For some feature films and most shorts, festivals are often the most significant means of reaching an international audience. Similarly, in many countries, festivals are an effective way of enabling large numbers of people to refresh their perceptions of the UK.
British Council Film and BFI NETWORK are excited to announce the launch of a new travel grant scheme for new and emerging filmmakers, specifically for international training labs.
