About this event

This programme is supported by the ScreenSkills Film Skills Fund with contributions from UK film productions, and will be delivered by BFI Doc Society Fund, Docs Ireland, Scottish Documentary Institute, and Screen Alliance Wales. 


In association with our delivery partners, we are excited to launch Producing Truths, a programme focused on building core production and business skills, confidence and a support network for independent producers working on documentaries outside of commercial structures. Participants will benefit from a programme tailored to the distinct challenges of developing, funding and distributing independent nonfiction cinema today, delivered by a consortium of industry leading partners.


This opportunity is open to up to twelve mid-level producers based in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and English regions outside of London. Producers should have completed at least one feature length film as the lead producer.

The programme will run from 13th May till the start of July and involve weekly online sessions plus in-person attendance at the Docs Ireland market in June. If you have any questions regarding the programme, feel free to email [email protected]


Applications close on 27th March.
