The Film and TV COVID-19 Recovery Fund has been created to reach people in the industry most affected by COVID-19. Offering financial and wellbeing support over six months to help people to sustain themselves and their careers through and out of the pandemic. We’re able to provide grants of £750 a month for up to six months (up to £4,500) to active workers in film, TV and cinema affected by the crisis who are the least financially resilient, and who are the most at risk professionally and personally.
Applications will close: 5pm Monday 12th October 2020
It doesn’t matter when you apply within the application period, it’s not on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications will be assessed based on need, not when we receive them.
We’re grateful for donations from Amazon Prime Video, BAFTA, BBC Studios, Sky Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment and ViacomCBS, as well as for the generosity of private donors and the fundraising efforts of many people in our industry.
