Funding futures

We’re creating a platform of rolling funding schemes for filmmakers, creatives, artists and innovators that reflect the range of disciplines at the heart of Bournemouth Film School. Our first fund has been created specifically for our Alumni, but we’re planning to open to funds for regional, national and global applicants, too.
