Songs of Praise co-producer Avanti Media and Around the World in 80 Days indie Slim Film+TV are among 25 companies set to receive BFI funding to grow their international profile.

The BFI has invested £2.1m of its £7m UK Global Screen Fund in international business development grants for film, TV and gaming companies, each of between £50,000 and £117,600. The grants are non-repayable and will span three years.

Other primarily TV producers receiving funds include Glasgow’s Two Rivers Media, drama indies Warp Films, The Ink Factory and Synchronicity Films, and children’s producer Alphablocks.

The BFI’s fund, financed through the DCMS, has already invested in 18 projects for international distribution and 11 for co-production in its inaugural year.

The business development grants will variously be used for research and development, key hires and foreign dubs of English-language shows.
