CREATEiNNOVATE Open for Applications

Posted: 4th June 2014

CREATEiNNOVATE 2014 is the second edition of Northern Film & Media’s high level industry mentoring and live project development programme that will support four experienced film producers and writers to develop innovative creative and commercial ways of extending their feature film story worlds online.

We are looking for four Producer – Writer teams with a feature film in the late stages of production or development to support in creation of an innovative online project which has the potential to deepen the impact on audiences engaging in their feature films. Alongside fantastic support from our team of highly experienced mentors programme attendees will also receive a £500 bursary towards developing their ideas and access to key financiers and industry decision makers through our new partnership with leading cross-media market Power to the Pixel 

Alongside the development programme we will also run a series of workshops open to any filmmakers interested in developing their cross-media skills. These sessions will cover a range of topics including marketing, branding, building audiences and new business models. The programme kicks off with a 3 day film ‘hack’ in August where Producer-Writer teams will workshop their feature film ideas in a lab style environment and this website will be 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.

Deadline for applications is Midday Monday 7th July.
