BBC Three Northern Docs Shorts Scheme

We are proud to announce the very first Northern talent initiative of its kind.

Designed to act as a stepping stone opportunity for talent seeking to develop a career in documentary, two Northern filmmakers will receive the chance to produce a short ten-minute film for broadcast by the BBC.

The scheme welcomes emerging or up-and-coming directors and expects those either shortly out of film school, with particularly strong portfolios/ work examples, or APs with some self-shooting/ directorial experience, to direct the films.

Applications for this scheme have now CLOSED

You can still view the Terms and Conditions for the scheme here.

We’ll announce the winners at the end of November.
