Producers based within and outside Scotland can apply if they are
able to demonstrate that by accessing the Production Growth Fund
they will secure major production and/or post-production expenditure
within Scotland, employing cast and crew based in Scotland, and/
or using Scotland-based production facilities companies, thereby
significantly increasing the economic benefit to Scotland.
If you are a producer based outside Scotland, the attachment of a
Co-Producer based in Scotland could enhance the overall benefits for
Scotland, which taken together with a significant spend to funding
ratio will strengthen your application. Applications for the support of
projects that aim to maximise training opportunities for crew based in
Scotland are encouraged and welcome.
The Fund has a budget of £2m for the period 2018/19 and is available
to qualifying productions in the form of a non-recoupable grant.
Your project must be in an advanced stage of development and
financing and you should be aiming to commence budgeted prep
within 12 weeks of a decision being made.
You will be required to supply a full production budget, production
schedule, post production schedule and finance plan along
with your application.
