Celebrating student films on the silver screen

Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) and the Bournemouth Film School (BFS) are working jointly with Crowdfunder to help graduate film and documentary makers crowdfund additional money to add on top of the £1,200 grants they already receive.

To up the stakes, Crowdfunder will pledge £500 on one project, selected by an expert panel of judges, that raises the bar with their crowdfunding campaign.
