Film London’s Microwave - Open for Applications

Posted: 27th May 2015

Writers and directors from across the UK are invited to consider applying to Film London’s Microwave initiative, which is now open for applications.

Microwave offers an incredible opportunity to access feature film production training and funding. The scheme has produced a slate of films including BAFTA-nominated Lilting, starring Ben Wishaw, and Shifty, starring Riz Ahmed.

This round will produce up to six new features at production budgets of £150,000, with additional funding to support development and distribution.

The organisers of Microwave are keen to get a diverse selection of promising talent and projects on board. Please note that applications must be made through a London-based production company, although the writer and director do not need to be London-based.

Applications close 14 July.

Check out Film London’s website for details, eligibility criteria and guidelines for applications.
