The New Ideas Fund is a bespoke Research and Innovation fund offering small grants for creative entrepreneurs and companies working in moving image industries with storytelling at the heart of their work.

Grants of between £1,000 and £20,000 are available to support the development of new and innovative ideas, enabling entrepreneurs to build upon their creative and commercial ideas, creating opportunity for business growth.

Screen-based storytelling businesses based in the English regions, outside of London, may apply. 'Screen-based' comprises those working in film, TV, animation, games and/or immersive content (or a non-screen-based business looking to diversify what the company offers, eg through VR/AR).
