The Film Exhibition Fund will help to restart the independent film exhibition sector in the North.

With exhibitors and audiences looking ahead to venues reopening in the coming months, the Film Exhibition Fund is there to support organisations as they restart in-person screenings of British, international and independent cinema.

Funding of up to £10,000 is available for activity taking place between June 2021 - March 2022. If your event runs past 31 March 2022 or takes place in April/May 2022, please do get in touch with us now to discuss:

Support can go towards a range of costs – such as programming, marketing and staffing - on projects which present culturally valuable film programmes and broaden audiences for independent cinema.

The entire range of organisations in our exhibitor network are eligible to apply - including full-time cinemas, mixed arts centres, community cinemas and film societies, film festivals and touring programmes.

More details on the fund, its eligibility criteria and how to apply can be found in the funding guidelines.
