Ffilm Cymru’s new Film Education Innovation Fund is inviting proposals to explore new ways of working to overcome barriers to film education during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through these testing times, film provides an opportunity to inform, educate, entertain, and engage with the world around us. Film education plays a vital role in the way we navigate the world; it creates skills for interpreting the moving image and explores how stories are told, while providing educational opportunities through an accessible and versatile medium.

Applications to our Film Education Innovation Fund could include activities such as:

  • distanced learning through online delivery
  • developing resources
  • CPD training

The proposed activity could take place in formal learning environments such as schools, or informal learning in the wider communities.

Innovations supported through this fund may lead to a future Film Education Project Fund application, the deadline for which will be in Autumn 2020.

For more information, please read the full Film Education Innovation Fund guidelines here.


We are accepting applications on a rolling basis between now and 30th September 2020. Expressions of Interest can be submitted at any time but no later than 15th September 2020.

The call is open to applications with an ask of up to £2,500 (up to 75% of total costs) to support activity taking place during the financial year, ending on or before 31st March 2021.

This funding offered is comprised of National Lottery funding, delegated by the BFI, and Ffilm Cymru’s management of this fund is supported by both Arts Council Wales and the BFI

Closing date: 30/09/2020
