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

The Film Exhibition Fund - Pitch Pot is a flexible part of the Film Exhibition Fund offering support of up to £3,000 for activity taking place between April 2024 - March 2025. This fund has been made available thanks to BFI National Lottery as part of the BFI’s Screen Culture 2033 strategy.

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 13 March 2024 to 15 February 2025. 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
