Emerging Indie Fund

The aim of the Emerging Indie Fund is to support N&R indies by providing financial assistance for slate development underpinned by commissioner commitment to help enable small, new, emerging indies across the UK grow.

Indies must have their sole or primary office or be establishing a new base in the Nations and Regions, turnover should be under £3 million per annum and companies must demonstrate a slate of ideas with potential to be commissioned by C4. 

In consultation with Commissioning Editors, Channel 4 Heads of Department will identify one company per genre to fund in the Nations and Regions; Comedy, Drama, Entertainment, Features and Formats, Factual Entertainment, News and Current Affairs, Specialist Factual, Documentaries and Daytime.
