Major Programmes Reporting

We have made changes to our standard reporting requirements for Major Programmes 2021, in order to meet the challenges of remote delivery and assessing online, physical, and hybrid vents.

We will require you to survey your audience using the form sent by our team, and then to report back to us about the project using the narrative form,  project log, and by submitting a final expenditure report using the budget you submitted in your application.


For Film Feels Hopeful & Japan 2021, we ask that you send your event attendees the Major Programmes Audience Survey. The Audience Survey will be sent to you by our team as a unique URL (for online screenings/events) and a QR code (for in venue screenings/events) for you to share with your attendees.

We will share the collated results with you for your event at the end of the season.

If you prefer to do your own surveying, we will need you to incorporate our questions into your survey, and to share the results back to us at the end of the project. Please contact us for the list of questions and criteria.



When your project is finished, we will ask you to complete our project narrative report available here:




We will also ask you to complete a project log and send it back to us.
You also need to send us a final expenditure report, detailing where the funds were spent compared to the original budget. Use your original budget document to do this.
The project log (for both Film Feels Hopeful and Japan 2021) can be downloaded HERE.
You will be asked for audience totals for both 'live' events and any subsequent online views of your activity during the period 14 June - 31 August 2021 (Film Feels Hopeful) or 1 September - 31 December 2021 (Japan 2021)  so we expect you to monitor this information when you deliver your project.

Major Programmes Evaluation and Reporting.

It is very important that the success of activity is reported back to us, we work with the BFI to measure the impact of funding.

We capture project reporting in three main ways:

  • Audience Figures, to measure data;
  • Narrative Report, for the story behind it;
  • Audience Surveys, for audience impact;

You can find all the documents you need for reporting on projects below.

Please do not amend the structure of any of the templates, as this will impact reporting of data to the BFI.

Please send your completed reporting documents (project narrative form, budget and expenditure document, and project log) to

If you are interested in finding out what we do with your data, and the impact of our previous programmes, download evaluation summaries for past seasons below.
