We want to create opportunities for audiences across the Midlands to engage with the widest range of film and in as many places as possible so our Pitch Pots are here to help.

Our Pitch Pots are available to help support a risk and try something new. Whether you are new to film exhibition and want to put on your first screening or an established cinema or community screen who wants to trial a new type of programming, we want to help audiences in the Midlands engage with the widest range of film in as many places as possible.

This fund is open to exhibitors throughout the year. It will close once the available funds have been awarded. We anticipate awards up to £2,000.
