This fund is currently closed for applications, and expected to reopen in Spring 2022.

The focus of the Film Exhibition Fund is to continue to reboot the independent film exhibition sector and aid the recovery of cultural organisations across the Midlands. It will support exhibitors to resume audience development activity in line with FAN objectives, programme British, independent and international film, and deliver screenings.

The fund will support activity taking place from October 2021 - March 2022. Support of up to £10,000 is available, and the fund is open to the entire range of members of Film Hub Midlands. Support can cover programming, marketing, audience development, and associated screening costs.

Whilst audiences are at the heart of everything FAN does, the sector’s ability to reach those audiences in a collective setting is entirely dependent on the sustainability of the cinemas, festivals, community venues and other organisations that make up the Film Audience Network. In turn, online activity will only be considered for support when accompanied by in-person screenings.
