Crowdfunding campaign requests2020-11-30T12:56:03+00:00

We are unable to share crowdfunding campaigns due to the volume of requests we receive. We can consider sharing your campaign if a key member of the project team has contributed to Raising Films (via a written testimonial) or has taken part in Raising Films training (for example Making It Possible or CLOSR). We may be able to share information about your crowdfunding campaign if there is an intention to submit the project for the Raising Films Ribbon.

Do you have any vacancies?2018-11-12T14:48:33+00:00

If we’re looking for people to join the team we’ll publish a call-out on this page. Plus we’ll shout about it over on Facebook and Twitter.

Can I be featured in your newsletter?2020-11-30T12:56:30+00:00

Our (approximately) monthly newsletter includes a round-up of news, updates and upcoming events from organisations, groups and movements that sing to the ethos of Raising Films. If you want to submit something for potential inclusion in the newsletter please complete the contact form.

Can you share something on social media?2020-11-30T12:56:43+00:00

We are always asked this! Our general rule of thumb is that we’re happy to share posts and do RTs if you have contributed to Raising Films. That usually means we’ll have already published a story about your experiences working in the film and TV industry. You can take a read through the kind of stories we publish on this page. Due to the number of requests we receive to share crowdfunding campaigns we are unable to do this unless a member of the project team has contributed to Raising Films or there is an intention to submit the project for the Raising Films Ribbon.

Do you give out funding?2020-11-30T12:56:49+00:00

We don’t directly fund projects or people but we do work with the Film & Television Charity and you can find out more about their support on this page.

Invite Raising Films to your event

As a campaign and a community, here at Raising Films we’ve built our network through offline events as well as our dynamic online conversations.

We’ve been excited to work on events and training sessions with all these amazing organisations and festivals…

Bath Film Festival | BIFA | Birds Eye View | Directed by Women | East End Film Festival | Edinburgh Film Festival | Film & TV Charity | Glasgow Film Festival | Into Film | London Short Film Festival | Mind the Gap | Newman House | Parents in Performing Arts | Radical Film Network Glasgow | Raising Films Ireland | Screen Yorkshire | Sheffield Doc/Fest | Soho House | Underwire Film Festival | Women in Film and Television

We’ve been film programmers, panellists, co-promoters, workshop leaders, motivational speakers, and event managers. We have a community of thousands who are interested in your film-related event – especially if it’s family-centred, or you are able to offer a crèche or on-site childcare (we have experience in setting these up).

How can we work with you to share our story? Let us know using the contact form. As a small community organisation with limited resources, we sometimes have to charge a fee for our time. Please give us as much information as possible about your event and we’ll come back to you ASAP.

You can also follow Raising Films on Twitter and Instagram or find us on Facebook.
