APPLICATIONS are open for a £200,000 a year fund aimed at helping up and coming filmmakers.
The Kent Development Fund for film and TV production in Kent has now started accepting applications.
A pioneering fund managed by Kent County Council's Kent Film Office, is looking for applications in four areas - Development, Production, Skills and Training and Infrastructure.
Applications will be considered by the Kent Film Office and successful projects will then be presented to the Kent Development Fund panel for final approval.
Kevin Lynes, KCC cabinet member for regeneration and economic development said: "The Kent Development Fund is fantastic news for Kent's economy and residents. We're proud to be supporting the county in this way and the success we've already seen by supporting just one film shows what we can achieve by supporting more films in future."
KCC previously provided £75,000 of funding for feature film The Calling, which was made in the county and starred Kent actress Brenda Blethyn. Visit www.kent.gov.uk/filmoffice.
