get those funds to develop your plan! Looking for Brabant based creators

Get the opportunity to receive personalized feedback on your project plan and pave the way towards a successful


funding application or project plan during a 9-week one-on-one coaching period.


Originating from a recurring query from filmmakers and AV creators we engage with in our Filmhelpdesk sessions and at our festivals, we have developed a program open to makers who have a project plan in development and require additional coaching to refine their project plan into a submission-ready application.

In this program, six plans/makers will receive one-on-one coaching over nine weeks by a professional who will engage in three sessions to provide insightful feedback on your developing proposal. So every three weeks you will have a coaching session, in between you will work with the feedback the coach gave you. Through this intensive process, you will prepare your plan for submission to the pre-selected funds you have identified.

This program is open to all working professionals. Students cannot apply. It’s open to trained and autodidact professionals. Your work must align with the field of audio-visual arts, and you must have a clear understanding of which fund(s) you intend to apply to and meet all the requirements of these funds.
