Film projects in the English regions outside London can apply for between £2,000 and £50,000 from Creative England’s Film Culture Fund.
The Film Culture Fund aims to boost access for audiences to a wide range of film content in the English regions outside of London, to enrich audiences’ experience through education opportunities, and to bring the unique resources of regional screen heritage into wider film provision.
It is looking to support the provision and interpretation of both specialised and mainstream film in England, by investing in audience development within the film exhibition sector; film education activities which are linked to and support film exhibition infrastructure (eg cinemas, film festivals, film societies and other platforms); the acquisition, preservation and conservation of and access to regional screen heritage.
There’s a total of £490,000 delegated Lottery funds from the BFI to distribute in the first round.
Applications are now invited from cinemas, film archives, film festivals, mobile cinemas, film societies and other eligible organisations.
Funded activity can include programming, education, reaching under-served audiences and regional screen heritage.
