Creative Scotland's Film Festivals Fund aims to increase the range and diversity of films available to audiences in Scotland.

The Fund can be applied to at any time, and projects supported through this fund will help to promote cinema-going in Scotland, and to raise the profile of film, especially independent and specialised film.

Awards are likely to be in the range of £5,000 - £70,000 per year, for up to two years, depending on the scale and reach of the applicant.

The fund is open to new and existing film festivals, not currently supported through Regular Funding, based in Scotland and presenting programmes to audiences in Scotland.
