News Image
Creative Skillset has announced an additional £111,000 available for organisations to provide training and skills development in the priority areas of digital exhibition, audience development and VFX.
The body offers funding for organisations to provide subsidised courses and development opportunities to address key training issues, as identified through its close work with the industry.
The funding seeks to ensure that "a diverse range of people across the UK can access affordable training and that the UK film workforce continues to be highly skilled and world-class."
Funds are now available in the following priority areas:
  • £45,000 in digital exhibition
  • £16,000 in travel bursaries to support VFX learning in Europe
  • £50,000 in audience development
Dan Simmons, Head of Film at Creative Skillset, said: "These additional funds address vital concerns. With digital and technological advancements taking place overnight, the film and VFX industries need support to ensure that existing professionals keep up with change, and that students leave university with the skills and knowledge needed in the workplace."
The funding is part of Creative Skillset's four-year film skills strategy which supports the BFI's strategic priorities, outlined in its five-year strategy Film Forever. The deadline for applications is 9 January 2014.
