About FLAMIN Productions
FLAMIN Productions supports mid-career artists who have a track record of working with moving image. Projects will be supported that are at concept stage, or in development, demonstrate a shift or step forward in an artist’s practice and stand to benefit from the support that FLAMIN Productions can offer.

FLAMIN will provide each filmmaker with a development bursary of £1,000 during this period and up to four days of mentoring and advice from external mentors. Awardees will have access to the FLAMIN team and other Film London staff for advice and guidance at all stages of development and production.
