Get your cause in front of the camera, and cheaply

The Media Trust is offering small charities the chance to make subsidised short films to promote their work.

The trust’s Volunteer Films initiative is looking to support 25 charities, each with a turnover of less than £2m, by making films for them for only £1,000. Such a project would normally cost about £15,000.

The films will be produced by TV professionals, and in the past have featured appearances from high-profile celebrities, including double Olympic gold medal-winning athlete Kelly Holmes and newsreader Jon Snow. The initiative is now in its fourth year and has so far supported 75 small charities.

The films are guaranteed airtime on the Community Channel. Charities are also provided with DVD copies of their films, versions they can stream on the internet and free professional advice on marketing.

For further information and an application form, call 020 7874 7640 or email Application forms should be returned by 7 April.
