Following the success of its short film anthology, The Uncertain Kingdom has launched a development fund for feature-length projects.
The Uncertain Kingdom Development Fund will support filmmakers with an agenda as strong as their vision and projects that interrogate British culture; asking who we are, how we got here or where we are going.
The fund will welcome projects of 70+ minutes in any form or genre, including fiction, animation, documentary and dance projects. Projects will be considered at treatment or script stage. The fund is commercial and will look for projects with a route to market. Unlike the anthology project, the features supported by the new fund will not be released together.
Filmmakers must be residents of the UK but need not be British. Seeking to address the challenges directors and producers face creating sustainable careers, The Uncertain Kingdom Development Fund will prioritise filmmakers who have previously made a feature.
Like the original anthology project, the fund will take a hands-off approach – empowering writers, directors and producers to tell their stories their way – and will support filmmakers from a range of backgrounds and experiences.
Applications for The Uncertain Kingdom development fund open on Friday 22nd October at 11am and close on November 12th at 11am.
