Funding

London Calling

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 are funding 21 new shorts from teams across the capital.

In addition to funding, the schemes provide filmmakers with training and mentoring — supporting them every step of the way.

In 2013 London Calling Plus became our first shorts funding scheme aimed specifically at emerging Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic talent, with the aim of championing underrepresented voices in the capital.

The next call for applications is likely to be in autumn 2015. Be the first to get the call – sign up for our newsletter
