Funding the Filmmakers

Studio Equity offers financial support for the creation and production of films and television shows. This support extends to international co-productions as well as completion financing.
The vast majority of our funds will continue to have full access during COVID-19.

We have made it our mission to assist the independent industry during the epidemic and to make certain that it will be able to recover and prosper once the situation has stabilised.

Studio Equity Production Fund gives out grants funded by the Lottery to storytellers who have a daring vision and succeed in their creative work. These grants may be used to support original live-action, new media, or animation feature films.

Our partner, is in charge of administering the Lottery money for documentaries, while Studio Equity is in charge of administering the Lottery funding for short films.
