Applications are now open for development funding for 28-minute factual television (non-scripted) programmes.
We want programmes which reflect the richness and diversity of BSL and Deaf Culture.
Who can apply for development funding?
This is aimed at:
• Deaf directors,
• Deaf producers, and
• Deaf producer/directors
who have made at least one programme which has been broadcast on television and are working with a UK-registered limited company whose core business is to make television programmes.
The company must have made at least one television programme for BSLBT or a UK broadcaster.
We will also consider co-productions between a television production company without the necessary track record and a company which meets the requirements.
[Once a limited company has produced a programme for BSLBT on a co-production basis, the company would then be considered eligible to submit ideas themselves in future commissioning rounds.]
