The Community Channel's Guide for Film-Makers

The Community Channel wants to show your films on air.

We're looking for short films, dramatised films, documentaries, student programmes and community programmes from film-makers of ALL ages and backgrounds.

If you want YOUR programme to be aired, it must:

1. Be good;

2. Be thought-provoking and

3. Make our viewers want to do something such as volunteering.

So - if you've made a good film that you think will inspire our viewers to make more of their lives, get in touch now! If you're a student, think about making a film for the Channel as part of your course.

If you need help with funding for your film, click here.

We've put together a set of downloadable documents to help you on your way:

You can either download the Word file or an Adobe Acrobat PDF. You need Acrobat reader for this - get it free here.

The FAQ Pack for Film-Makers contains all the information you need on making content for us.

The Basic Information Form is a little form to send with your tape so we know what your film's all about.

- Download Word or PDF.

The Durations Document helps us work out what length slot to put you film into.

The Delivery Form contains notes and tips on how to fill in the Programme Delivery Form. It's a very useful guide!

The Programme Delivery Form is the big form you'll have to fill out if we decide your film is suitable for the Channel. If you're stuck, use the notes from the Delivery form.
