The BFI Doc Society Fund is CLOSED
The Made Of Truth Shorts programme is CLOSED

The next cycle will start in 2019

The BFI Doc Society Fund aims to develop storytellers from all parts of the UK, backing feature projects with bold cultural and social ambitions.


The Fund will encourage talent to take risks on form and content, where the more commercial sector cannot. We heart the cinema, but we are also platform agnostic and open to projects that reach audiences in new ways.


We can support:

  • Any stage - Development, Production, Completion
  • First time filmmakers
  • Hybrid forms
  • Multi-platform

What we don’t fund:

  • Filmed productions such as a theatre show, filmed sporting or music event
  • Artist installation work
  • Journalism
  • Films intended primarily for broadcast television

To bear in mind:

Sign up to the Doc Society newsletter to get news of opening and closing dates on the film funds as well as dates for our regional #howdoyouDocSociety events, connecting local filmmakers to industry.
