BFI Audience Fund Opens for Applications (UK)

The British Film Institute has announced that organisations with direct experience of film distribution, exhibition and audience development can now apply for funding of between £20,000 and £200,000 for a range of audience-facing activities to boost diversity and inclusivity, and to build a broad film culture across the UK.

The British Film Institute Audience Fund provides two types of awards:

  • Project Awards – these support clearly defined time-limited proposals to increase audience choice and engagement across the UK;
  • Organisational awards – organisations will be expected to demonstrate significant impact on at least a regional, and ideally national, scale on a year-round basis.

Applications for project awards are accepted year-round, the closing date for organisational awards is the 4th November 2019.
