British Council > Film Africa Travel Grants 2019-2020

The Royal African Society, in partnership with the British Council, is pleased to offer African filmmakers the opportunity to apply for funding to attend premier UK film festivals where their work has been invited to screen in 2019 and 2020.

The Film Africa Travel Grants 2019-2020 is a pilot scheme primarily aimed at filmmakers aged 18-35 working in short form film, as well as those producing virtual reality, immersive storytelling experiences and installations. However, first and second feature directors will also be considered.

The purpose of this funding scheme is to enable African filmmakers to present their work in the UK, develop new contact networks and reach new audiences, whilst increasing the exposure of contemporary film and film talent from the African continent in the UK.

The funding available is to be used for travel, accommodation and subsistence costs. Grants will be awarded up to a maximum of £2,500 per application. 

Deadline: on a rolling basis (based on a list of films)
