Film & TV Production Restart scheme opens

Camera lens Submissions are now open for the UK government’s Film and TV Production Restart scheme. 

The £500m package - announced in late July - aims to help productions across the country that have been halted or delayed by an inability to obtain insurance for Covid-19 related risks to get back up and running.

It is hoped the backstop will give producers the confidence they need that they will be supported if future losses are incurred due to Covid-19.

The Scheme - still conditional on state aid approval - is now open for applications, which must be made via the appointed third party administrator, Marsh Commercial. The application form can be viewed and submitted through this link. As per the initial announcement, future claims made under the Scheme can be backdated to 28 July 2020.

The registration deadline for this scheme is 23:59 GMT on 31 December 2020, and claims will be able to be submitted up to 23:59 GMT 30 November 2021 for losses incurred up until 23:59 GMT on 30 June 2021.
