The BFI Short Form Animation Fund offers support for higher-budget animated work from teams based in the UK. The fund is intended for work that is unlikely to be fully commercially financed and would therefore benefit from National Lottery support.
 
There is one call for applications per year.

The fund aims to give UK animators who have gained industry attention for their work the chance to work at a higher budget level. It will provide funding of £30,000 – £120,000 per project, supporting teams to create work that can gain major recognition and open up new opportunities. The fund can support narrative short form projects in any animated technique or genre (including documentary) and for any platform, eg cinema, online or TV (though not work intended primarily for broadcast television).

Filmmaking teams from across the UK, who can demonstrate relevant experience in writing, directing and producing, are eligible for the BFI Short Form Animation fund. The director, or writer-director, needs to have made at least three previous pieces of animated work, one of which should have received notable industry recognition.

Please check the eligibility criteria outlined in guidelines carefully before beginning an application to the fund.

Filmmakers with less experience, those at the start of their careers, and writers and directors without a producer, should visit the BFI NETWORK, which supports new filmmakers with networking, professional development opportunities and funding.
