Film and tv Production restart scheme
What is the Film and TV Production Restart Scheme?
The Film and TV Production Restart Scheme helps film and TV shows struggling to get insurance for Covid-related risks to get back into production. The Scheme makes direct compensation available to producers that incur costs caused by coronavirus abandonment or delays to eligible pre-existing and new productions.
It is important that that film and television production companies register as soon as possible for the Film and TV Production Restart Scheme, well in advance of production start dates, in order to access the scheme.
Who can apply?
The funding is available to all productions made by companies where at least half of the production budget is spent in the UK. Shows will receive compensation for costs up to a value of 20% of the production budget, with abandonment covered up to 70% upon agreement with the Government.
