The Film Exhibition Fund is to support FAN Members to resume cultural programming and engage a broad and diverse audience as they navigate reopening. It is not for new organisations or new projects, as it is geared toward helping existing hub members to reboot activity and re-engage audiences.
A key priority of the fund is to encourage film exhibitors to embed inclusion and environmental sustainability into their approach to restarting activity.
The Fund is primarily aimed at Film Hub Midlands Members engaged in year-round audience facing activity. Support is available for sustaining and expanding existing provision including time-limited, regularly occurring activity such as film festivals where they are able to demonstrate an especially strong fit with FAN’s priorities and where they address the strategic needs of the Hub.
