Documentary funding

We have partnered with Doc Society to fund and support progressive and creative documentary filmmaking across the whole of the UK.

Doc Society has been awarded up to £1m of National Lottery funds a year to provide funding for UK documentary films, along with a dedicated support programme for new and emerging filmmakers as part of BFI NETWORK. Working in partnership with the BFI, Doc Society will have a strong focus on deepening regional and national opportunities to enable talent UK-wide to tell transformational stories that maximise the potential of the genre. It will also employ a creative approach to reaching audiences that will reflect the rapidly evolving distribution space. Please visit the Doc Society’s website to find out more.
