Bursary Awards help our Members access professional development opportunities that improve their expertise, enhance their organisation and contribute to a more knowledgeable industry. 

Funding is available for events and training that will support you and your organisation to be better equipped to deliver effective programmes of specialist cinema.

If there’s a festival with a valuable industry strand that you want to attend, a training course that addresses the skills gaps in your organisation, or a screening event that will help broaden your programme - Bursary Awards are available to make these important opportunities more accessible. We can provide funding to cover travel costs, event fees and accommodation expenses to get you where you need to be.

Bursary Awards are flexible and delivered on a case by case basis depending on your needs. Requests for support should show how your individual professional development might bolster our community’s collective intelligence and how your organisation will benefit in the long-term.
