UK Connect – Submissions

February 13, 2023

UK Connect is a new initiative from Screen Producers Australia and the British Film Institute designed to create new global opportunities for film and television producers at this year’s Screen Forever.

Held as part of the SPA Connect market, the program will assist ten Australian and ten UK-based film and television producers seeking international partners and financing.

The BFI will also select four UK sales agents to join buyers at the market.

Participants will be offered a full day of events focused on doing business and unlocking additional funding with UK counterparts, including exclusive talks, networking, and bespoke 1-1 meetings on the day before the official opening of Screen Forever.

Further networking events and curated meetings are planned for the selected projects during the May event, in order to give producers the best possible chance to secure financing and suitable partners for their projects.

UK Connect applicants from Australia will need to hold a valid Screen Forever 37 registration. After a completely sold-out event earlier in 2022, delegates are encouraged to register early to secure their spot at UK producers and sales companies will need to apply via the BFI at

The application process requires a description of the applicant’s selected project, including details of any previous development funding, percentage of funding already secured, approximate budget, support or partners attached, synopsis and pitch to buyers.

Applicants are required to be available to travel to Queensland’s Gold Coast from May 02-05 May 2023.
