Film Forever is the BFI’s plan for 2012-2017. It covers all BFI activity and will be funded by Grant in Aid from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and an anticipated increased share of National Lottery receipts, as well as relying on growth in our earned income including fundraising and new entrepreneurial activity.
We believe our role is one of enabler, investing where we can most make a difference, where we see potential for creative excellence, or where we can be a supportive catalyst for change and innovation. Partnership and collaboration are core principles which sit at the heart of our plan.
We are keenly aware that BFI resources are a relatively modest part of the overall film finance landscape, and so we have determined to focus on three priority areas only:
- Expanding education and learning and boosting audience choice.
- Supporting the future success of British film.
- Unlocking our film heritage.
After an energetic conversation about film across the whole of the UK over the last 18 months, a conversation which we hope will continue for the duration of this plan, Film Forever is where the action begins.
We hope you will follow our progress and track our achievements.
