Another set up which has emerged to snaffle some of your cash is the “Crackerjack Film Fund 2021“, which to all intents and purposes looks like a site where eager filmmaking applicants can apply for grant money
“Kickstart your career” it says. “In our search to find emerging new talent, we are giving away £30,000 this year“.
Worth having – and the site has a seductive countdown clock on it, suggesting that you might want to get a move on and pay up before it gets to zero.
However caution is the watchword here as this apparent largesse is not quite the giveaway it seems as, buried in the application process, there is a button marked “submit £20“.
A lottery in other words. You pay the money, you might win a “Grand Prize of £10,000”. Well yes, you might.
Efforts to reach the “Crackerjack Fund” have produced no response. They also have no presence on Companies House and nothing to say who they are on their website or anywhere else to be found.
Big Capital Letters then: AVOID!
