How do you define an emerging filmmaker?

To apply as an emerging filmmaker, you cannot have more than one professional credit in the key role you are applying as - director, writer and/or producer.

Some examples:

  • You do not need any previous experience in the industry to apply.
  • You could have some experience in the industry, working in other roles, but want to make the transition to lead a project.
  • You could also have multiple credits, as a producer, but be applying to develop your first project as a director or a writer.
  • Or, you could have had success with a first project, and be looking at getting your second project off the ground.
