BFI and BBC Launch Born Digital New Talent Opportunity

Born Digital is an exciting opportunity for new and emerging filmmakers to realise their first broadcast project, with grants to be awarded to fund, or partly fund, up to 12 short films.

In 2019, BBC Arts, BBC Four and the BFI will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the World Wide Web. Inspired by this very special birthday, Born Digital is an exciting opportunity for new and emerging filmmakers to realise their first broadcast project, with grants to be awarded to fund, or partly fund, up to 12 short films.

If successfully selected by an expert panel, participants will be awarded a grant of between £3000 and £5000 towards the creation or completion of their original film. There will be the opportunity to have your film screened at BFI Southbank and for it to be broadcast on BBC Four in early Spring 2019 to mark the anniversary of the World Wide Web Foundation.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday 16 October.
