Deadline Wednesday 16 August 2017
New Approaches is a development programme supported by Creative Skillset. The programme supports up to six artists working on feature length artists’ film projects, intended for traditional and non-traditional theatrical distribution. Spanning all genres, this scheme supports artists who are experimenting visually, a process which influences the script, form and structure. Applications are open to artists from across the UK.
The programme will consist of training along these key strands:
One-to-one bespoke training sessions for the selected artist directors with the New Approaches Production Advisor, Samm Haillay (Third Films)
Bespoke mentoring one-to-one sessions
Classroom scale sessions for the selected artist directors with industry professionals
Classroom scale ‘Writer’s Gym’ classes
Seminar style sessions on film production and distribution
Networking events for artists and producers
Introduction to marketplaces, for example an international festival visit to International Film Festival Rotterdam
By the end of the programme, each participant will have produced a concise treatment and pitching materials, established a ballpark budget, confirmed key collaborators, and produced a draft script or step-outline document.
FLAMIN will introduce participating artist filmmakers to curators, producers and other industry professionals whose experiences straddle the art and film worlds. The aim of New Approaches is to develop new projects which have an experimental, visually led approach to storytelling.
New Approaches is supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund, with BFI’s Film Forever National Lottery funds.
Participant Specification- Essential Criteria:
FLAMIN will introduce participating artist filmmakers to curators, producers and other industry professionals whose experiences straddle the art and film worlds. The aim of New Approaches is to develop new projects that have an experimental, visually led approach to storytelling.
Each participant must have a ‘live project’. We are looking for feature length projects that are at an early development stage, from talented filmmakers who are unclear of what is required to move their projects on and/or do not have the contacts and networks to advance their ideas.
• The proposed budget of the feature length project should be no more than £1 million.
• This scheme looks for artists working with moving image, with projects that must be their first or second feature
• Artists must not yet have a producer attached for these projects
• Artists must have a track record in making moving image works that have reached wide audiences
• Artists must be based in the UK
Cost for 6 month programme: £300 – towards programme costs, including one festival attendance
The programme is open to UK wide participants and there are bursaries available to contribute towards travel costs for non London-based applicants.
New Approaches will run from September 2017 to February 2018. The deadline for applications is 5pm, Wednesday 16 August. Information on Criteria and How to Apply to the scheme can be found at flamin.filmlondon.org.uk/
