Our work Find out about our film funding and sector support

Film Hub North launched in April 2018 with a fresh approach to nurturing grassroots film culture and, since then, has established itself as a vital resource for the industry in the North of England. We’ve invested significantly in both the exhibition and production sectors, leading to hundreds of thousands of cinema admissions, dozens of new projects from Northern filmmakers and a more skilled, more connected film industry in the region.

We’re based out of three of the North’s leading independent cinemas: HOME, Manchester; Showroom Cinema, Sheffield; and Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle upon Tyne. From there, we work to bridge the North’s expansive geography and harness the wealth of potential across the region. We’re grounded in our local film communities, so we’re well positioned to recognise and respond to the sector’s needs, and form partnerships with like-minded organisations.

The Hub is proud to award National Lottery funding as part of the British Film Institute’s Film Audience Network and NETWORK programmes. We work in: Cheshire, County Durham, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Northumberland, North and North East Lincolnshire, Tyne and Wear, and Yorkshire.
