Ffolio is an exciting new partnership between Ffilm Cymru, BBC Wales, BBC Arts and the Arts Council of Wales.

It offers training, mentoring and BBC commissioning opportunities to creatives, with a demonstrable track record in another discipline, based in Wales and without a professional director's credit within film or TV.

If you’re a dancer, blogger, musician, writer, photographer, graffiti artist, games designer, puppeteer, circus performer, animator or are professionally creative in any form, we want to hear from you.

In Brief

Film duration: 90 seconds to 5 minutes.
Number of ideas that will be commissioned: up to 16 short films in total.
Ideas: Your idea for Ffolio should push the boundaries of film, whether that be through story or experimentation with sound, image or structure. It might include animation, documentary, scripted drama or performance. However it should be achievable within a production budget of £5,000.

If shortlisted, you’ll receive training, bespoke support to develop your short film ideas and bursaries for costs such as travel, childcare or an interpreter.
