Creative England offers production funding for feature length films.
Our West Midlands Production Fund has recently closed, however the Creative England Production Fund is currently accepting applications. Scroll down or click the buttons above to find out how to apply for our Lottery Fund or view a showcase of projects funded through our West Midlands Production Fund.
The Creative England Production Fund is targeted at feature films with budgets of up to £2 million from up-and-coming talent or from established directors looking to experiment with innovative approaches. We're particularly interested in projects from regionally-based filmmakers or which have a strong regional voice.
We are looking to support around three to five features per annum over the next four years, with production awards of up to £200,000 per project. Head here to submit an expression of interest to the Creative England Production Fund.
Our recently closed 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.
