Talent Development Programme with BFI & LFF

Apply To The 2023 BFINETWORK@LFF Talent Scheme

London Film Festival is back for their 10th year and BFINETWORK@LFF are once again offering their talent development programme to 15 talented writers, directors and producers.

Successful applications will receive festival accreditation (allowing you access to the London Film Festival). Private Screenings + Filmmaker Q&A. Networking opportunities and showcasing of work.

The deadline fast approaches. The online application must be submitted by midday, Friday 4 August 2023. So hurry up and enter.

Who can apply?
We are looking for the brightest emerging filmmakers that the UK has to offer. Those who are ignited by an insatiable passion to make their voices known and push the boundaries of what audiences have come to expect from UK film. We want to hear from filmmakers who have a distinct quality to their short form work, a unique tone that sets them apart, a perspective we’ve yet to uncover.
We welcome creatives from all backgrounds and disciplines who are looking ahead to their debut feature or long form commission. This is your chance to show us yourselves – Who do you want to be? What do you want to make?
In order to be eligible to apply you must be able to satisfy all of the following conditions:
resident in the UK
over 18 and outside of full-time education
not have written, produced or directed a feature film that has received UK distribution (this includes via online platforms)
have produced, written or directed a significant body of short-form work and be looking to make the step to your first feature or long-form commission.
by significant body of work, we mean a creative track record of multiple works in your field (that might include short film, music video, theatre, TV, web series) that have garnered industry recognition by way of funding or commissions, awards and festival selection, critical praise or a substantial online audience.
If you are unsure if this programme is suitable for you or you have enough experience, email
