Estuary on Film – What’s it all about

Estuary On Film

What's it all about?

The Estuary on Film commission is a regional talent development opportunity delivered by Screen South in partnership with Creative Estuary which will co-commission 4 short films to be made in the Thames Estuary area. This partnership reflects the connections being made with the Estuary’s growth as a creative production corridor.

The commissions offer emerging and existing filmmakers, based in the Estuary region, the opportunity to make a short film which presents unique stories and diverse perspectives.

Estuary on Film will award £5000 each to 4 filmmakers, to create a high quality, bold creative short film which ignites a spark and reflects the diverse range of talent in the Estuary. Working with a range of partners we will provide inclusive high-end Development and Production expertise to support these Estuary based filmmakers.
