Micro Film Commission Submission 2020


Micro Film Commission 2020

Applications for our 2020 film commissions are now open.

In Brief

Exeter Phoenix recognises that moving image plays an important role in reflecting our culture, establishing individual voices and we can help filmmakers and artists develop new skills and long-term relationships with cast, crew and cinema audiences, both locally and nationally.

Level Of Funding

The 2019 Exeter Phoenix Micro Film Commission will offer TWO awards of £500 for the development of an inspiring and ambitious narrative, which will engage a cinema audience though concise visual story telling. Aimed at those who are new to the industry, either first time filmmakers or those with limited experience in short filmmaking and looking to develop their skills in this area. This award is for those based in the Devon region only. We accept applications from all genres of film, including drama, documentary, animation, experimental and more. We are expecting these films to speak to a cinema audience and to be bold enough to sit before the Studio 74 Programme. The final film is required to be 3 minutes in length. We can also offer a set amount of in-kind support in the form of free/reduced equipment hire, access to facilities such as edit suites, rehearsal spaces, access to training courses as well as technical and creative advice and mentoring.


The deadline for applications is Fri 28 Feb 2020.
