London Borough Film Fund Challenge

Young filmmakers

Applications for the London Borough Film Fund Challenge are now open.

Film London recognizes the importance of supporting emerging talent, as well as actively encouraging film-making and film activity in local communities.

London Borough Film Fund Challenge 2012/13 (LBFFC) is a short film fund for aspiring film-makers, open across the whole of London for the first time. An award-winning grassroots production scheme responsible for kick starting a number of film-making careers, the LBFFC is supported by Creative Skillset and delivered in partnership with seven London Boroughs.

The LBFFC includes production funding, alongside mentoring and a training programme for the selected film-making teams. With an open application process, the LBFFC is available to grassroots talent who are resident in London.

The LBFFC aims to stimulate local film-making and develop new skills, offering up to £4,000 towards the production of a short film as well as training and advice throughout the entire process.

A key part of the scheme, showcasing the shorts made through the London Borough Film Fund Challenge, is the annual Best of Boroughs Film Showcase (aka the BoBs).
