Young Audiences Content Fund

The Young Audiences Content Fund (YACF) was launched in April 2019 and is administered by the British Film Institute (BFI) to support the creation of distinctive, high-quality television content for audiences up to the age of 18. Jackie Edwards, Head of the YACF, told The Bookseller that they wanted all types of live action programmes and this could provide opportunities for book-to-screen adaptations.
