Some good news relating to film funding, just for a change. The BFI have a Transition Fund for “projects facing budget cuts in funding as a result of the changes in the national and regional film funding landscape”. There were two successful local applicants:
Birmingham International Film Festival
The Birmingham Black Film Festival promotes the work of local black film makers and is the only event of its kind in the West Midlands.
Flatpack Festival aims to make audience engagement with film a creative process by delivering unique social experiences through the use of innovative screening venues in and around Birmingham.
