The British Council is not a funding body. However we are partners in the Artists International Development Fund, which is administered by Arts Council England, and we do offer some small grants for film makers via the Short Film Promotion scheme.
Artists International Development Fund
A joint three-year programme between the British Council and Arts Council England which will support individual artists based in England to work internationally. The Fund will provide grants of between £1,000 to £5,000 for artists to travel, explore and collaborate internationally while carrying out professional projects.
Short Film Promotion Scheme
We are currently reviewing the benefits and eligibility requirements for the Short Film Promotion Scheme and and have therefore temporarily suspended application to the scheme. We will be re-launching in Spring 2012 with new guidelines and new benefits - please visit our Film website to find out more.
