This fund provides organisations with quick-fire micro-grants for one-off events and short screening programmes.

We are excited to launch the Film Exhibition Fund - Pitch Pot: a flexible new part of the Film Exhibition Fund offering support of up to £3,000 for activity taking place between April 2022 - December 2022. This is suitable for organisations who are looking to start a local screening programme, put on a special event or to enhance their existing programme with extra audience development work.

You can apply at any time from 22 February 2022 - 01 October 2022. The application process involves completing a simple, short form. Our team aims to contact you within 5 days of submission to inform you of your assessment date and when you will receive feedback.

Take a look at the funding guidelines for more information on the fund, its aims and eligibility criteria. If you have access requirements that mean you need assistance when applying for funds, you can request help through the BFI Access Support Scheme.

If your project requires more financial support (up to £10,000), you might consider applying to our Film Exhibition Fund scheme
