TFN Film Funding Event 4 July

Talk Thursday 4 July 2013. 6 PM - 9:30 PM

On Thursday 4 July, 6pm-9.30pm the first  TFN Film Funding Event, a joint BRITDOC Foundation and The Funding Network (TFN) initiative, will take place at the Frontline Club.

TFN Brit Doc

The Funding Network (TFN) runs regular events open to all, where charitable projects are presented, and donors engage in friendly philanthropy. TFN members are everyday donors from all backgrounds who want to help interesting young charities further their missions. For their first event entirely dedicated to films, they have selected four documentaries connected to strong campaigns, including three recipients of Bertha BRITDOC Connect Fund grants.

The Projects

Virunga: Untitled Gorilla Project, which pitched at Good Pitch Europe 2013, aims to raise public awareness and help save the Virunga National Park – Africa’s oldest and most ecologically diverse national wildlife sanctuary.

A Whole Lott More, which pitched at Good Pitch Silverdocs in 2010, shines a light on the crisis surrounding unemployment levels of those with intellectual difficulties and hopes to encourage audiences to be part of the solution.

No Fire Zone, which has pitched at Good Pitch events in London and Europe over the past year, aims to raise awareness of war crimes committed in the final months of the Sri Lankan Civil War and provoke the international community to investigate them.

Why Me? UK, wants to encourage more victims of crime to access restorative justice by producing a film re-enacting a meeting.

On 4 July, all filmmakers will pitch their project and answer questions from the audience, which is largely comprised of donors. Once the filmmakers leave the room, bids of donaions are taken, with many match funding offers that reach across the room. Learn more about how TFN works:
