This is an opportunity for you to network, take part in a specialist workshop and learn about the opportunities the BFI Film Audience Network has on offer.

The BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) is a collaboration of eight Film Hubs (Film Hub Midlands is one of them) with a membership of over 1,500 cinemas, film festivals and other film exhibitors across the UK.  

Working with cinemas on incredible films like A Fantastic Woman, God’s Own Country and Mustang, FAN has organised panel discussions and parties, created GIFs, zines, beermats and badges, worked with local press and online bloggers, flyered, flash-danced and Facebooked - to ensure that anyone, no matter where they live in the UK, find out about great independent films screening near them.
