British Art in Motion


We are committed to ensuring this opportunity is open and accessible to all, and there is a budget in place for access needs. This might include support for a professional assistant or specific travel and accommodation needs or help if you are facing particular financial barriers which would prevent you from participating. If you are unsure whether our provision will cover your needs, we would be very happy to have a chat with you to discuss how support could be planned and to put your mind at ease. We appreciate such conversations can be difficult to have and promise to keep any information shared fully confidential. Please contact our Networks Administrator, Anthony Tino, at [email protected] if you would like to discuss this further.

Travel and Accommodation

For the eight students who successfully progress to Round Two of the competition, the Paul Mellon Centre (PMC) will provide funding to cover the cost of travel within the UK, accommodation in London and subsistence. The PMC will also fund your travel to London for the Film Festival, where the successful applicants’ films will be screened later in 2024.


The eight students who successfully progress to Round Two of the competition will each have access to a £500 fund to cover production costs, including licensing fees, equipment costs, travel to filming locations, insurance and permissions to film on private properties, amongst other things. This will be held and administered by the PMC.
