Black and global majority-led indies and individuals will be able to vie for a new series of grants announced today by the Film and TV Charity.

The Reel Impact programme, which aims to counter systemic racism in the industry and open access for under-represented talent, will allocate grants of up to £25,000 (indies) and £10,000 (mid-senior level individuals with at least three years experience).

Distributed in three rounds over two years, the grants will fund project development, skills, and networking opportunities.

Applications for the first round open today and run to 30 June, and the charity will announce the results in September.

A further round focused on organisations, is expected in November with the third set to be allocated in September 2025.

FTVC chief executive Marcus Ryder stressed that the grants aim to meet applicants’ specific needs rather than being “oppressively prescriptive”.

He added: “It’s our hope that the programme will significantly move the needle for talent the industry desperately needs to attract and retain.  

“As our campaign launches, we want to encourage everyone in the film, TV, and cinema industry to help us spread the word throughout their networks.” 

Anita Herbert is managing Reel Impact, which was developed by the charity’s Impact Partnership Programme.
