500k from Nesta and UKFC for digital innovation in film

Digital Innovation in Film is a new initiative from NESTA and the UK Film Council, which will help drive growth in British independent film companies by encouraging them to take better advantage of new technologies.

NESTA and the UK Film Council are calling film companies, who want to explore the potential of online sales, distribution and marketing, to come forward.

How it works

The 'Digital Innovation in Film' project will team-up independent film companies with specialist partners to reach audiences in new ways.

The project is the first in a series from NESTA's Innovators Growth programme, which will explore ways for creative businesses to grow by exploiting new technologies.

Over the next few months, NESTA and the UK Film Council will select up to 10 film companies from across the UK to take part in the project. They will be involved in workshops and receive one-to-one support from partners to explore emerging opportunities for new revenue streams.
