By March 28, 2019Funding, Uncategorized

The BBC Documentaries New Directors’ Initiative is looking for the next generation of documentary film makers. Six candidates will have the opportunity to produce and direct their first long-form documentary for BBC Three. Previous films made by new directors on the initiative include: Abused by My Girlfriend and Manchester Bomb: Our Story, as well as Grandad, Dementia and Me.

A leading production company will house successful applicants for the duration of the project. This company will oversee the development, filming and post production of the idea. Please note that BBC Documentaries New Directors Initiative funds filmmakers for the duration of the project but this is not a staff role at the BBC. Positions will mostly be based in London; opportunities outside of London are not yet confirmed. The length of the contract depends on the length of the production, and could be anything from three to five months.
