We believe children and young adults (YA) should be able to enjoy an exciting variety of cinematic stories.

That’s why our Hatch fund develops live-action family or YA films that reflect the diverse experience of children and young people in Wales today.

The Hatch programme involves expert advice and training, which will help you to bring your cinematic vision to life and to gain on the ground understanding of your target audience.

How much can I apply for?

Up to 75% of the total development cost, to a maximum of £24,999.

What do I need to apply with?

In addition to a completed application form, a script for the project if available or an 8-10 page treatment and a sample script; CVs for lead members of the creative team.
