Market and Festival Attendance Fund

Funding to help screenwriters, producers and directors attend key festivals and film markets.

During this period of Covid-related restrictions on travel, the Market and Festivals Fund will only be open for writers, directors and producers taking part in online events. Whilst this means that costs for travel and accommodation cannot be included in an application, costs such as accreditation and access costs including childcare are eligible.

This will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in line with guidance from the Scottish Government.
This fund aims to support the continued development of a skilled and diverse screen workforce, fostering real professional opportunities and sustainable careers by supporting the professional and creative development of both emerging and established filmmaking talent, and promoting their work and Scottish filmmaking internationally.

We will fund online attendance at international festivals and markets for screenwriters, directors and producers based in Scotland, in order to enable them to virtually meet potential partners, access global markets and promote their completed projects. We will support online attendance at key UK markets and festivals where attendance presents a significant opportunity for the filmmaker or advances the realisation of projects in development.
