The YACF – A User’s Guide
Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 15:30 - 16:30
Showroom Cinema 4
There’s a brand new fund for children’s programming, dedicated to supporting the best public-serving projects across live-action and animation. In this important session Head of Fund, Jackie Edwards and team members will speak about the what’s, where’s and why’s of the Young Audiences Content Fund; who it’s aimed at and how to apply. Live since April, the fund seeks to help grow the children’s TV industry in the UK by providing up to 50% of a project’s budget, and this is an ideal opportunity to hear what Jackie and her team have learnt about the review process – which kind of projects do well, and which don’t. If you’re thinking of applying this session is invaluable. If you’re not thinking of applying, come along, and perhaps you’ll change your mind!
This session begins with a presentation by Changemaker Euella Jackson
