The Indie TV and Film Development Fund totalling £200,000, will distribute awards of between £2,500 and £25,000, to help independent TV and Film production companies to develop new content.
It is funded by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and the LEP through its new Creative Catalyst programme which was established in response to Channel 4’s relocation to Leeds and broadcaster commitment to increase commissioning in the Nations and Regions.
Screen Yorkshire will lead the application and assessment process in collaboration with representatives from the LEP. The fund is open to independent film and TV production companies with a substantive base in Leeds City Region who can demonstrate a proven track record in productions that have been broadcast (nationally or internationally) and / or commercially distributed.
