COVID-19 Film and TV Emergency Relief Fund Now Open

| Return|

The COVID-19 Film and TV Emergency Relief Fund will provide support to the thousands of active workers and freelancers who have been hit hardest by the closure of film and television productions across the UK.

Created by The Film and TV Charity in partnership with the BFI, the Fund is supported by initial donations totalling £2.5 million from Netflix, the BFI, BBC Studios, BBC Content, WarnerMedia and several individuals.

The Film and TV Charity and the BFI is covering all overheads, enabling donations to go directly to eligible workers and freelancers across film, TV and cinema. One-off grants of between £500 and £2,500 will be awarded based on need.

Alex Pumfrey, CEO of The Film and TV Charity, said:

'The COVID-19 Film and TV Emergency Relief Fund is unique, time-limited and designed to provide financial support where the need is most acute.

'Our systems will highlight applicants who are experiencing particular distress and our experienced team will respond to those red flags with personal follow-up calls.'

Applications are open for two weeks, closing on Wednesday 22 April 2020 (18:00 BST).
