BRITDOC, HOME and NFTS win Creative Europe funding
In the latest round of funding from the MEDIA sub-programme’s Training scheme, 51 training courses have been awarded funding sharing a total of over €7 million. Three UK courses continue to receive funding:
- The National Film And Television School’s Inside Pictures
- BRITDOC Foundation’s Impact Producers Lab
- Greater Manchester Arts Centre’s Feature Expanded
In total there were 87 applications submitted to the 14 April deadline (call reference EACEA/06/2016). Among those that were successful, the majority are well known, established programmes, such as Berlinale Talents, EAVE, ACE and Torino Film Lab. There are also nine new initiatives funded for the first time. They include:
- Art Department Masterclass (Lithuania) is designed to encourage a dialogue between the rising and experienced professionals of the art department. The project focuses on art department’s functions in development and production of a feature film, as well as the challenges faced in post-production due to the digital shift.
- The Biennale College (Italy) is an initiative launched in 2010 by the Biennale di Venezia with a strong commitment to developing new creative energies channelled into producing art. The Biennale College - Hybrid is a programme devoted to Virtual Reality. The Biennale College – Cinema explores the aesthetics of micro-budget feature length filmmaking and the new integrated models of production which engage with an audience from the outset.
- Promised Land (Poland) is the first international initiative focused on training in the fields of digital sculpting, illustration and animation.
- Trans-Atlantic Partners (Germany) is an international programme dedicated to transatlantic co-production (feature film and TV drama) bringing together independent producers from Europe and from the US and Canada.
