The Bursary Fund helps film exhibitors access training opportunities, improve their skills and boost their confidence.

Bursaries are all about getting you where you need to be. If your organisation has training needs or specific development ambitions, this fund can help you realise them. Simply find an event or training scheme that works for you, and apply for support to cover travel, ticket and accommodation expenses.

Training opportunities supported through the fund should equip your organisation with the skills and experience to contribute to a vibrant film culture in the North. Funding is available for in-person or remote learning, and we welcome applications from staff and volunteers working in film exhibition.

You can apply at any time - just submit a request form a minimum of 2 weeks in advance of your chosen event. We aim to provide feedback on your request within 5 working days, letting you get on with booking tickets and arranging travel as soon as possible.

Take a look at the funding guidelines for more information on the support available, the fund's aims and its eligibility criteria.
