Funding & Talent
Thank you to everybody that applied for the 2013 slate of London Calling and London Calling Plus. Applications have now closed. The successful projects will be announced later this year.
London Calling and London Calling Plus are Film London's short film funding schemes aimed at giving more opportunities to London's new and emerging talent. Building on more than a decade of experience, the schemes will fund 23 new shorts from teams across the capital.
In addition to funding, the schemes provide film-makers with training and mentoring — supporting them every step of the way.
In 2013 London Calling Plus became Film London's first shorts funding scheme aimed specifically at emerging Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic talent, with the aim of championing underrepresented voices in the capital.

- 18 short films are awarded a maximum of £4,000
