The Young Film Fund is the BFI’s Lottery funded filmmaking initiative which provides young people with opportunities to develop skills and build confidence whilst nurturing an interest in film. Funding is available to organisations across the UK to enable them to provide filmmaking training for young people aged between 5 and 19 years of age.

Organisations can apply for a pilot grant of up to £5,000 to make 1 short film or for a studio grant of up to £30,000 to make between 2 and 4 short films.
