REACH – Tees Valley Screen Film & TV Development Grant Awards

Posted on 20th February 2020

REACH Film and TV Development Grant Awards are designed to fund the development phase of exceptional film & television projects and support the growth of eligible SME creative businesses based in the Tees Valley. 

Successful projects need to be high-quality, viable and capable of taking your work to the next level. Projects should have a viable route to production and support the creative and professional development of writers, directors, producers, craft and technical talent based in the Tees Valley. We are particularly interested to receive projects which offer significant opportunities to people currently under-represented in the sector. 

REACH is match funding, therefore 50% of your total project budget must be pledged or in place at the time of application. Applicants can apply for a minimum grant of £1,000. There is no maximum amount, however awards of between £1,000 – £2,500 are likely to be granted.

If you are interested in making an application, you must first schedule a 1-2-1 meeting with Tees Valley Screen. Please email to make an appointment. 

Deadline for applications is June 1, 2020.
