Fund your movie if aged 11-19

First Light offers grants through its Young Film Fund to enable young
people to participate in all aspects of film production. The funding
is available to organisations that work with young people aged between
5 and 19. Applications from Yorkshire and the Humber are being
actively encouraged. Grants are available through three programmes:

· Studio Awards - up to £30,000 for between two and four films of up
to 10 minutes
· Script Awards - up to £3,000 for script writing projects that team
young people with script professionals
· Pilot Awards - up to £5,000 for one short film of up to five minutes
in duration.

Deadlines: 19 January 2010 for all three programmes; further deadline
of 27 April for Pilot and Script Awards
