Market and Festival Attendance Fund
Funding to help screenwriters, producers and directors attend key festivals and film markets.
This fund aims to support the continued development of a skilled and diverse screen workforce, fostering real professional opportunities and sustainable careers by supporting the professional and creative development of both emerging and established filmmaking talent, and promoting their work and Scottish filmmaking internationally.
We will fund attendance at international festivals and markets for screenwriters, directors and producers based in Scotland, in order to enable them to meet potential partners, access global markets and promote their completed projects. We will support attendance at key UK markets and festivals where attendance presents a significant opportunity for the filmmaker or advances the realisation of projects in development.
For the Market and Festival Attendance Fund, risk is a factor in our decision making. One of the key risks to creative activity is currently COVID-19 and our approach is informed by the Scottish Government guidance on this issue, which is regularly evolving.
Whilst Screen Scotland wishes to continue to support creative and developmental practice, we cannot accept avoidable or unmanaged risk to health and safety and our funding approach will be cautious in this regard. Applications should ensure that relevant Scottish Government guidance is being followed, and appropriate risk plans are in place and included with your application.
