2019 Call-for-Proposals (CFP) for Production Assistance (P-Assist), New Talent Feature Grant (NTFG), Southeast Asia Co-production Grant (SCPG) and Short Film Grant (SFG) – Film Submissions

The Production Assistance (P-Assist) programme focuses on generating a pipeline of Singapore projects and nurturing Singaporean talent in credited roles; the New Talent Feature Grant (NTFG) encourages first and second-time directors to launch their careers in feature filmmaking; and the Southeast Asia Co-production Grant (SCPG) emphasises on nurturing film talent in Singapore and the region to jointly develop quality Asian stories for the world. The Short Film Grant (SFG) seeks to fund budding talented filmmakers on their next short film. Applications for film projects are by Call-for-Proposal (CFP).

There will be two CFPs for features -- a 1st CFP for P-Assist (Film) and NTFG applications, and a 2nd CFP for P-Assist (Film), NTFG and SCPG applications; and one CFP for Short Film Grant (SFG) in 2019.
