The fee for attending DYFF18 is €1200. This includes six nights accommodation, course materials, film festival accreditation and most meals.

We have a limited number of the following scholarships available:

Full scholarships worth €900 towards course fees (leaving €300 to pay in course fees)

Part scholarships worth €700 towards course fees (leaving €500 to pay in course fees)

Travel scholarships worth €200 (to spend on travel only)

To apply for scholarships, please complete the section in the application form, which can be found here. Scholarships are allocated on a first come, first served basis so early applications are encouraged.

Please note, due to funding agreements, priority for scholarships will be given to film festival professionals working for not-for-profit organisations with an annual turnover of less than €400,000 from low capacity countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia) or non-EU countries that participate in the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme. This Scholarship is also open to freelance film festival professionals whose financial circumstances would otherwise prevent them from participating in the training.

In order to qualify for travel support, applicants need to live at least 50 miles from the course location. No travel expenses will be payable without official receipts.

"Without wishing to sound too gushy I found it really inspiring - I came away with a lot of really useful ideas that we can adapt to our own cinema and a lot more confidence in putting in a wider programme to appeal to a more diverse audience. The day really delivered!"
