What is the Lush Film Fund?

While we remain committed to sharing the work of independent storytellers and grassroots groups, we also recognise the financial barriers aspirational filmmakers face.

Therefore, to support fledgling talent, whose message and ethics align with our own and who may otherwise struggle to get funding, we introduced the Lush Film Fund.

Each year the Lush Film Fund commits £250,000 to help finance small-to-medium-sized film projects that focus on raising awareness around the issues of animal protection, environmental preservation, and human rights.

This isn’t our story, it’s your story. Every penny we grant comes with the added assurance that we’re not interested in brand promotion, product placement or subliminal selling of any kind.  

So if you need help making a documentary with a point of view, or are struggling to find funding for a film or animation that inspires action, please contact: [email protected]
