Build Your Audience

Addressing global changes in feature film distribution, this scheme provides UK-based filmmakers with the skills, knowledge and networks to help them sell their films in the marketplace, source and maximise audiences and prepare for new digital technologies in the traditional routes of distribution and marketing.

Successful applicants will attend three intensive two-day workshops, a one day-day workshop focusing on international sales and distribution and a final pitch day where they will bid for support from industry professionals. The scheme will aid teams in creating a tailored distribution and marketing plan for their specific projects. The participants will also be supported through a dedicated mentor support programme in between the workshops.

Audience on Demand gives filmmakers the tools and knowledge to assess their projects in order to ensure they find the largest audience possible. In turn this keeps filmmakers' businesses competitive, ultimately developing sustainable careers for emerging talent.

Successful applicants will also be able to access bursary support. Levels of funding available through this strand are unstipulated.
