Regional Screen Scotland’s Local Film Festival Fund is open for applications from Wednesday April 20th 2016.

Festivals and organisations offering community cinema provision may apply for up to £3000 to support a film festival event taking place anytime before January 31st 2017.

A rolling programme of application is being instigated for the remainder of the year. Applications will be assessed on a six weekly basis.

In keeping with RSS’s remit, applications should cater for areas of Scotland where communities cannot routinely access a cinema or where a local initiative would enhance their community, grow audiences for film and increase the knowledge, skills and capacity of the exhibition sector.

Examples of previously funded events can be found on our website

First assessments will be made week commencing 23 May 2016 and the

Final deadline for applications to the LFFF is 7 November 2016.
