Please note that these we have a limited amount of support available and therefore this is a competitive process.

What events can I apply for?

The bursary scheme is bespoke in order to support our wide and diverse range of Hub Member organisations. You can apply for a bursary to attend an event that you feel will be of benefit to a film project, your organisation or personal development.

For example, you may apply to attend:

● Sheffield Doc/Fest to aid in programming a new documentary strand at your organisation

● A festival in Europe that focuses on youth engagement to aid in your organisation’s young programmers strategy

● A marketing course run by the Independent Cinema Office to aid in reaching new audiences

How much can I apply for?

FHN can support up to 100% of the total cost of fees and travel and accommodation, however, there is a limit of £500 per organisation per annum. We would where possible, expect organisations to contribute towards a proportion of the costs for the event applied for.

Applications should bear in mind that FHN’s bursary scheme utilises public funds, therefore, all support requested should be reasonable and travel should be standard class.
