There's Not Much We Can Do by Erica Monde

Join us for an informal inspiration session to learn more about how to apply to Bridging the Gap.

In this session we will run through the application guidelines, and give you some pointers on developing your short documentary narrative, and creating a story from an idea, and how to put this on paper.

Bridging the Gap is one of the leading documentary new talent initiatives in the UK, offering documentary development training, a cash budget, and one year of international festival distribution. This opportunity is open to emerging filmmakers based in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

There’s no specific theme for this year’s open call. But we expect to be surprised, challenged, and moved by submissions that embrace the creativity of the documentary genre, and subvert expectations in terms of form and content.
