First Light Film Nation UK Outreach Grant Programme

Grants of up to £10,000 are available to engage young people aged 14 to 19 years who are not in formal education in a project that combines watching, making and understanding of film.
Funding is available for the following:
·     Projects which provide filmmaking training, plus elements of watching and understanding film for at least 20 disadvantaged young people aged 14 to 19 years.
·     Projects that match disadvantaged young people who are not in mainstream education with professional filmmakers with an extensive track record of working in film with disadvantaged young people.
·     Projects that recognise film is a powerful tool for engaging disadvantaged young people and empower those young people to lead in all areas of the process and give them a voice.
·     Projects that include substantial complementary watching and understanding activity such as a mini festival, screenings and master classes.
·     Projects that result in the making of two short films that are up to five minutes duration each.

Constituted organisations with a registered office in the UK are eligible to apply; this includes limited companies, local authorities, schools and charities.  

A maximum of 70 grant applications will be accepted. If the cap of 70 applications is not reached then the deadline for applications is 21 October 2013 (2pm).
