Create Innovate application deadline approaches

Posted: 18th April 2013

The 30 April deadline is approaching for applications to NFM’s CREATEiNNOVATE - a web resource and digital development programme designed to support filmmakers as they explore the commercial and creative potential of their feature film story worlds online.


The Create Innovate programme will feature industry mentoring alongside a series of workshops open to any filmmakers interested in developing their cross-media skills. These sessions will cover a range of topics including story development, pitching, building audiences and new business models. Launched with a special event featuring Hilary Perkins, multiplatform commissioning editor for drama at Channel 4, Katie Ellen, Distribution Manager at BFI and Thomas Benski, CEO of Pulse Films, the programme proper will start with a three day film ‘hack’ in late May led by award winning author Naomi Alderman and creative technologist Natalia Buckley. The Create Innovate website offer a space for filmmakers on the programme to share their learning and experiences as they develop new cross-media ideas aligned to their film slates. We are also pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with leading cross media industry organisation Power to the Pixel - more details of which to be announced soon.
