Written by Scottish Documentary Institute on . Posted in Documentary

Are you a Scottish-based emerging filmmaker with at least two short films screened publicly (tv broadcast or festival)?  You can now apply to Bridging the Gap PLUS.

Bridging the Gap PLUS offers the opportunity to work closely with Scottish Documentary Institute / SDI Productions, through bespoke and individual consultancies, and get a 30 min commission from BBC Scotland. We are looking for filmmakers willing to develop creative projects for television and a festival distribution.

There is no imposed theme but we would strongly encourage filmmakers to explore Scottish stories.

For more information and to apply:
Deadline to apply: Friday 24 February 2012 (midnight)

6 projects will be selected on the basis of the proposal and the profile of the filmmaker. In the following weeks they will be developed and honed further through two individual consultancies. At the end of April, 2 of these 6 projects will be commissioned for broadcast by BBC Scotland and produced by SDI Productions. Expected delivery: early 2013

Bridging the Gap PLUS is supported by Creative Scotland & BBC Scotland
