Screen Funding

TV Studio

In December 2017, proposals for a Screen Unit within Creative Scotland were approved, following the announcement of a doubling of resources for the Screen Sector in Scotland from £10m per annum to £20m per annum. Further updates in April 2018 and May 2018 announced a new phase of recruitment as well as refreshed funding streams, set out below. In June 2018 a new Film Festivals Fund was announced.

In August 2018, we revealed the new identity for Screen Scotland - the dedicated partnership for screen in Scotland, delivering enhanced support for all aspects of Scotland's screen sector.

Screen Scotland Funding includes:

  • Broadcast Content Fund: offering development and production funding for broadcast projects by eligible Scottish production companies
  • Film Development and Production Fund: offering development and production funding for screen projects by filmmakers based in Scotland.
  • Distribution and Exhibition Fund: to support the wider distribution of Scottish films.
  • Market and Festival Attendance Fund: to help screenwriters, directors and producers based in Scotland to attend key film markets and festivals.
  • Production Growth Fund: offering funding to help grow Scotland’s screen production sector.
  • Film Festivals Fund: increasing access to film in communities across Scotland and encouraging film festivals to grow.
