Many thanks for your interest in applying to the Production Finance Market and its New Talent strand.
The main PFM invites established UK, EU and international producers to apply, who:
have a feature film project (including feature documentaries) with a budget of at least €1m, that is clearly aimed at an international audience
have a significant production track record and/or:
have a highly promising project aimed at the theatrical market with packaged elements in place (completed script, director, budget, two lead actors where possible)
The New Talent strand prioritises filmmakers who are applying with their first or second feature (including documentaries).
Further New Talent application requirements are:
Project needs to be budgeted to a maximum of €1m.
(In the case of documentaries, budgets can often be lower but this may not reflect filmmakers’ experience level. If you feel that notwithstanding the budget your project may be better suited to the Main strand, there is a question on the form where you can state this.)
Filmmaking teams (producer & director) are required to attend
Producer must have demonstrable experience of physical production and/or financing
Director must demonstrate proven success with short form work selected for major film festivals, experience of broadcast television, theatre, commercials or music videos.
You must apply with a script that is fully developed and ready for finance.
You can apply for the New Talent strand to access completion finance – we will require a link to a URL of the edited film and creative and financial information related to the final spend on the film.
Applications are now closed for 2022.
