Microwave - Call for Applications

Deadline for applications is 5pm on 29 June 2007.

Film London has launched a project for London-based film-makers to produce ten micro-budget feature film projects in the capital.

Microwave challenges film-makers to shoot a full length feature film for up to £100,000 with cash and in-kind support. The scheme will provide an intensive approach to film-making, with an emphasis on tightly focused scripts, short production schedules and commercial potential. Microwave is open to film-makers working in documentary, fiction and to artists working with the moving image.

Backed by the BBC, the scheme provides up to £75,000 of direct funding per project together with a unique professional mentoring scheme from leading industry figures including directors Stephen Frears (Mrs Henderson Presents), Gurinder Chadha (Bride and Prejudice), and John Akomfrah (Seven Songs for Malcolm X); and producers Sandy Lieberson (Rita, Sue and Bob Too), Jeremy Thomas (Sexy Beast) and James Schamus (Brokeback Mountain).

Film London and its partners will also offer a range of assistance including in-kind support from leading facilities and service companies, including Ascent Media and AFM Lighting; competitive locations fees from many of London's local authorities; and a 'revenue share' model which will return a generous percentage of any revenue back to the film-makers.
