Film Hub Scotland - Pitch Pots 2018
Pitch Pots are a simple way for Film Hub Scotland members to access additional support to enhance new or existing one-off projects and screenings of independent British and specialised film. They prioritise projects that focus on promoting diversity and increase inclusion. The ambition for the fund is that members will be able to create impactful, one-off events to enhance their programme, or to deliver special activities tied to local, Scotland and/or UK events and initiatives.
Support of up to £200 is available for projects taking place from May - August 2018. Projects must be completed by 31st August 2018 (new funding streams will be available from that point to support projects of this type).
The focus is on:
Young Audiences: Developing young audiences, defined by BFI as those aged 16 to 30.
Diversity, inclusion & access- activity aimed at, and/or co-produced with, under-represented groups: Ensuring that a wider range of people - including Deaf, Living with dementia and Autistic audiences - can experience the cinema.
Reach & cultural engagement: Maximising the number of audiences engaging with titles and/or increasing the cultural depth of their experience. They will seek to support activity across a range of rural and urban settings.
Screen heritage & archive film: Helping more people celebrate screen heritage and archive films, including re-releases and the India on Film and Britain on Film Coastal strands.
