Run by Screen Scotland, the Film Education Partnership Fund supports partnerships and collaborative programmes.

Film education can take place in many different places or contexts, including schools, colleges and universities, teacher education programmes, cinemas, film festivals, libraries, film clubs and societies, media access centres and workshops.

However, this activity can sometimes take place in isolation from other work, limiting the sharing of expertise, resources and moving image education practitioners between them. Screen Scotland wants to help change that.

They are keen to support projects which build on and develop existing activities and networks, to enhance their connectivity, reach and potential for sustainability.

A key priority of this fund is to strengthen film education organisations and services, typically through provision mapping, joint professional development, events, collaborative development and delivery of film education programmes, or other partnership activities. The fund is not intended to support the delivery of standalone film education projects by a single provider.

The fund has a total available budget of £300,000, and awards are likely to be in the range of £5,000 - £15,000 per year for Pilot Developments, and in the range of £5,000 - £70,000 per year of activities for a full Partnership Programme, depending on the scale and reach of the project. You can apply for support for up to two years (i.e. a maximum of £140,000 for a two year programme).
