Budget for Filmmakers

This is a simplified budget template that should be useful for most short films and low budget productions. You may need to add additional items under specific categories, however, there should be enough detail to prompt further budgetary considerations.

The Template is in Microsoft Excel format. If you wish to add more line items, you will need to unprotect the document. When it is open in MS Excel, do the following:

  • Tools > Protection > Unprotect Sheet…

What types of Projects are eligible?

We’re not about to tell you our definition of “art”, or apply a bunch of arbitrary rules to what type so projects might be of interest to a potential investor. We do maintain a minor degree of editorial control (you can’t be proposing something that’s illegal, for example), but otherwise, the spectrum is broad. We’re happy to accept submissions for:

  • photographic exhibitions
  • short or feature film production
  • art installations or exhibitions
  • music festivals and events
  • theatre productions
  • poetry readings
  • Baroque music concerts

… and all places in between. If it relates to the Arts, you can seek funding here!

What information is published about a Project?

We only publish information marked “TBP” on the Project Registration form.

We respect your Intellectual Property and want to protect your ideas before they have come to fruition. Of course, the less you are prepared to publish, the harder it can be to find Investors.

Use your discretion. Speak in general terms that might pique the interest of an Investor, without giving the game away.

Who can apply for funding?

Put simply…ANYONE!

If you have an Arts Project you’d like to get up and running, then submit it to Host Broadcaster.

Even if the Project is in the early stages, if you can put forward your vision, you may be able to find investors who want to come on board.
