This Way Up is back! The annual conference for those working in UK film exhibition, This Way Up is a space to gather, connect, learn and be inspired.

The 2022 edition takes place in Dundee at Dundee Contemporary Arts, from 30 November -1 December 2022. Some external events will be hosted at V&A Museum, Dundee and just like last year, there will also be an online edition of the conference.

This Way Up is a place to come together to consider the key issues that affect our sector, and to develop creative solutions. As we sit on the cusp of a new 10-year BFI National Lottery Funding Strategy (April 2023 - March 2033), this is a vital time for us to look towards the future.

Open Call: Take the stage with Show & Share

Been part of an inspiring project that you'd like to present to the FAN network?

Got a burning provocation to put to your industry colleagues?

Do you have an idea that could make an impact?

The hugely popular Show & Share mini-presentations have returned. Now it's your chance to share your ideas with fellow film exhibitors at This Way Up 2022. Every year we hear from a series of inspiring speakers about projects set to make waves in the exhibition sector. This year, it could be you.

We're looking for proposals for a 5-10 minute presentation in whatever format you prefer; a simple slideshow, a short video or a work in progress. If successful, you'll get the chance to present to our #ThisWayUp22 attendees.

Deadline for applications: 5pm, Thursday 10 November.

Please note: presentation slots will only be available to pass holders. Passes are now available to be purchased on our Eventive page.
