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.
