About Film Hub North Who we are and what we do

Film Hub North is network of organisations committed to fostering a vibrant, flourishing film culture in the North of England.

Led in partnership by HOME, Manchester, Showroom Cinema, Sheffield and Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle upon Tyne, we support and represent a wide-ranging group of exhibitors and filmmakers throughout the region.

Working across Cheshire, County Durham, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Northumberland, North Lincolnshire, Tyne & Wear and Yorkshire, we distribute National Lottery funds on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network and BFI NETWORK. We provide funding and training that helps exhibitors expand their reach, develops local filmmaking talent and, ultimately, ensures that audiences in the North have access to a rich variety of cinema.

If you're part of an organisation that screens - or has ambitions to screen - film in the North of England, then you could benefit from joining Film Hub North. Membership is free and allows you to access our peer support network and apply for funding and professional development opportunities. Our membership is diverse and includes a range of organisations - from archives to independent cinemas, and local film clubs to international film festivals. We welcome new members that share our vision of championing film culture in the North. Learn more about becoming a member.
