Young Filmmakers Bursary Scheme

How to apply for a Chorleywood Film Club 2022 Young Filmmakers Bursary

Up to four Bursaries will be awarded, at the judging panel’s sole discretion, to those entries they believe are the most deserving of their support.

The Bursaries are intended to support the film making ambitions of the applicant and therefore must be spent on something that is film related such as equipment; supplies;  software; set design for a short film or a film-related course or educational experience. The Bursary can form a contribution to a larger expenditure on a qualifying item. Once granted, a Bursary must be claimed by the successful applicant within 12 months.

Each applicant must have a Parent or Legal Guardian’s permission to enter and be submitted on the official Application Form:

To cwfilmclub@mail.com by midnight on Friday 31st May 2022.  Applicants will be asked to provide the following information:

1) Tell us a bit about yourself in a maximum of 300 words
2) What inspires you to make film? (maximum of 300 words)
3) If successful, what will you spend the bursary on? (maximum of 300 words)

All applications must include a named Parent or Legal Guardian who give their permission to enter the Bursary Scheme.  All Bursary Scheme correspondence will be routed via the Parent or Legal Guardian who will also be expected to handle the financial aspects of the bursary if the application is successful.

To apply for the bursaries you must be a past entrant in Chorleywood Film Club’s Mini Movie Makers or Young Filmmakers competitions.  Successful applications will be announced on Saturday 18th June 2022. 

Our Next Film

The Last Bus –  Friday 13th May
(2021: Cert. 12: Drama: 82 mins: moderate sex references, implied strong language)

Tom, an elderly widower, uses his trusty free bus pass to take a deeply nostalgic trip from John O’Groats to Lands End. His mission is to fulfil a promise he made to his late wife, to take her back to the place they first met and lived happily together.

Unbeknownst to Tom, his journey and his unlikely antics on it, begins to capture the imagination of the local people that he comes across and ultimately Tom and his trip become a nationwide news story.
