Screen Funding

Calibre starring Jack Lowden and Martin McCann

About the Programme

In October 2014 we published Creative Scotland: On Screen 2014-17. Over the next few months we will be working with all our partners across the sector on the development of the next phase of this strategy.

There are two funds within the programme: 

  • Screen Funding
  • Production Growth Fund

Screen Funding

Screen Funding has an allocation of £4m for the period 2017/18 and there are five routes for funding:

  • Market and Festival Attendance
  • Single Project Development Funding
  • Production Funding
  • Distribution and Exhibition Funding
  • Slate Development Funding (the deadline for this route is 5pm on Monday 15 May 2017)

Production Growth Fund

The Production Growth Fund has an allocation of £1,000,000 for the period 2017/18 and is available to qualifying productions in the form of a non-recoupable grant. Its purpose is to help grow the screen production sector, create employment opportunities for Scottish-based crew, encourage the use of Scottish-based production facilities companies and deliver a direct and significant economic benefit to Scotland.
