First Feature Development


First Feature Development

We’re offering opportunities for emerging talent to develop their first feature project and we want to talk to you to help identify the best routes, activities or funding that are available for you.

We will help to identify what kind of support would help you and will tailor it to the specific needs of each project. Support will cover many areas including writers’ fees; story editing; script development; mentoring, or other professional development.

Eligible filmmakers will have made funded work that has had positive attention from the industry and/or public, but not yet made their first feature film.

As with all our programmes, we’d love to hear from you as soon as possible so we can work out whether this is the right one for you and, if not, how best we can support you. Get in contact with the SFTN team or download the Guidelines for further details.

Applications for First Feature Development are accepted at any time, and decisions will be taken on a rolling basis. However, it is strongly advised that you discuss your project with the SFTN team before applying.
