Propeller Awards are quick-fire micro-grants for one-off screenings and short programmes of special events.

The Awards are a flexible funding scheme designed to suit individual organisations’ needs and ambitions as they work to re-engage audiences with cultural cinema.

Support is available to help exhibitors adapt and strengthen their programmes by adding special event elements, experimenting with different approaches to audience development and trialing new screening formats. In-person, online and hybrid film events are all eligible for funding.

The current round of Propeller Awards funding will support screenings that take place between November 2020 - March 2021. The application process involves completing a simple, short form. Our team aims to provide feedback on your proposal within 5 working days, letting you get on with your project as soon as possible.

Applications close on Friday, 26 February. Take a look at the funding guidelines for more information on the fund, its aims and eligibility criteria.
