Film Hub North Bursary Scheme now open Programme and Personal Development awards available for members

Film Hub North Bursary Scheme 

Film Hub North is offering bursaries of £50-£500 for Hub member organisations in the Film Hub North region (Cumbria, Yorkshire, County Durham, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear).

Bursaries can be applied for under two priorities:

Professional Development Bursary

The Professional Development bursary scheme has been implemented to give Film Hub North members the opportunity to undertake specialist training that addresses critical needs for the sector, including but not restricted to: data for audience development, digital marketing, technical training, event management and diversity.

We previously awarded Laura Hegarty (Showroom Workstation, Audience Development Coordinator) to attend a Young Programmers Training Course and Lauren Cowdery (Junction Goole, Marketing Officer) to attend Cinema Know How 3.0, an audience experience workshop.

Programme Development Bursary

Programme Development bursaries are available to support members to access opportunities to encourage their programming knowledge within the exhibition sector through attending film screenings, festivals or study visits.

We previously awarded Leeds Queer Film Festival to attend Transformations Film Festival and Kathryn Penny (National Media Museum, Film Business Manager) to attend South by Southwest 2017.

The bursaries are available on a rolling basis but we do not accept retrospective applications. Please allow for up to two weeks turnaround for a response and make sure you apply before confirming your place or booking travel & accommodation. Film Hub North can offer bursaries to cover 100% of costs (up to £500), however applications demonstrating match funding or a financial commitment from the member organisation are treated favourably.
