British Council and the Film Development Board are supporting Taskovski Films, UK and Pame Film and Music Festival to co-produce three short films on gender issues. As part of this, we are announcing grants for three applicants with the opportunity to 

  • receive a placement in a capacity building workshop where the grantees further develop their pitches/scripts and professional knowledge on film production and distribution, among other topics
  • gain access to additional support throughout filmmaking through a network of UK and Nepali mentors
  • receive grant amount starting from NPR 400,000

Films that raise awareness of gender-based topics through women/girl’s stories, those concerning narratives of gender minorities, and which extend women/girls' voice and agency in topical areas will be prioritized for the grants and need to be realised within a 6-month period (by June 2021).

Interested applicants should read the guideline document and submit their script/pitches for assessment by an international panel. The submission deadline is 6:00 PM Nepal Standard Time, 28 December 2020.

Extended Deadline: 5 January 2021
