Films can be made in any genre and style – documentary, fiction, animation, cross-genre, narrative or presented. They must be suitable for broadcast/exhibition in public for audiences of all ages.

Films can be made on any equipment from a mobile phone to high-end kit.

Your film should be between 90 seconds and 12 minutes long.

  • Production: between October 2020 and 31 January 2021
  • Completion and delivery: by 31 January 2021

Funding the completion of an existing project will also be considered, but it will still need to fit within the timetable above.

More information, and the application form, is available on the Bradford Council website.
