Exeter Phoenix has awarded nearly 100 bursaries and commissions during the 15 years the scheme has been running. For many the process has helped establish film careers and played a vital role in building relationships within the creative industries.

2019 FILM COMMISSIONS

All applications for the 2019 Film Commissions are now closed.

There will be over £10,000 worth of support available in fees, training and equipment hire for filmmakers and artists based in the South West of England. There will be 5 commissions available across 3 categories: Micro Film, Short Film and Artists Moving Image. 

Many of Exeter Phoenix’s previous commission winners have gone on to win awards and gain recognition within the industry, with some developing feature length work, putting Exeter on the map.

We are looking for inspiring and creative proposals that demonstrate originality. All applications must be made via our online submission process. The proposal should clearly demonstrate the tone, themes and strategy of your ideas.
