Funds for producing feature films


Sheffield Doc/Fest and Creative England, in partnership with Creative Skillset, present Fast Track to Features – a documentary feature mentoring and networking opportunity aimed exclusively at regional and diverse documentary talent based in the English regions outside London.

Fast Track to Features is a combination of workshops, mentoring and networking events focusing on:
•      Preparing feature documentary-makers to attract the interest of funders, distributors and festivals
•       Preparing feature documentary-makers to access festivals and markets, including at Sheffield Doc/Fest, and get the most out of them
•       Building alliances between documentary professionals in different regions where networking amongst the documentary community has historically been poor

We're looking for regional documentary feature talent working on a project which has theatrical potential , and looking to take the step up to making a feature and reach broader audiences than they have before. You should be looking to join a network of filmmaking peers prepared to proactively be part of a local network of committed and mutually-supportive documentary-makers.

To apply, you must be based in a region of England outside of London and we especially welcome applications from female and BME documentary talent, and documentary-makers with disabilities.
Deadline for applying - Friday 18 January 2013
