FHN Seeking Business Consultancy Proposals for Transformative Film Culture for Hull 2017

Deadline - 28th August

We are seeking an individual to develop a sustainable business strategy for Hull Independent Cinema.The primary objective of this business strategy is to develop a 5-year strategic plan with Hull Independent Cinema which will:

• Continue to strengthen Hull Independent Cinema’s film programme beyond the 2017 year of Culture

• Continue the development of Hull Independent Cinema as an organisation

• Assess feasibility of having an independent film venue in Hull

• Develop a fundraising and income generation plan for HIC which identifies and engages appropriate funding partners

  • Long term aims for Hull Independent Cinema

Film Hub North, as part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, is tasked with developing regional audiences for independent film through funded, partner-led initiatives. Through the Transformative Film Culture for Hull 2017 initiative, HIC has been identified as the key partner to deliver a long-term independent film offering to the city of Hull. After the 2017 City of Culture has finished, it is vital that HIC have a clear plan in place in order to reinvest the cultural currency they have acquired this year into a long-lasting legacy of quality film provision for Hull’s populace.

Objectives and targets of the 2017 project include the ability to more effectively work with partners in the future - including the ability to engage with funding bodies, local authorities and community partners – and to build on the audience development foundations laid down during 2017.
