Our West Midlands Production Fund (WMPF) was set up with the aim of investing in the production of feature length films and high-end TV dramas from companies based in the West Midlands as well as from producers looking to establish a base to film in the region.
Through the fund we have been able to financially support a number of high-end releases that filmed within the West Midlands region such as 'Spooks: The Greater Good', the upcoming 'She Who Brings Gifts', 'The Call Up', 'Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger', documentary 'One Mile Away', high-rated TV series 'Line of Duty' and Emmy nominated and Golden Globe/BAFTA award winning 'Dancing on the Edge'.
In addition to the Production Funding options offered by Creative England, there are numerous other sources of finance available to filmmakers and production studios based within England.
Below, you'll find details of additional sources of funding available from external outlets. We'll aim to add new Production Funding opportunities to this page as they arise, so do check back regularly for updates.
