BUDDING film makers from schools, youth clubs and community groups could get a helping hand to fund equipment and training.
The Canary Wharf Group has called for applications to the Canary Wharf Film Fund which aims to encourage East End youngsters develop the passion and expertise fro film-making which could help them land jobs.
The cash comes from fees paid for commercial filming and photography on the Canary Wharf estate which has been used as a location for Batman Begins, Basic Instinct 2, Top Gear and The Apprentice.
The Fund is not directly backing individual film projects and preference will be given to applications from registered charities and schools to cover capital costs for equipment, training, education or production.
