Funding for distributing and exhibiting films

We enable British and International independent films to connect with audiences across a range of platforms by supporting UK distributors, sales agents and exhibitors.

We give audiences more choice by awarding Lottery funding to widen the release of films in the UK. We also develop the export opportunities for British films by providing funding to promote them at major international festivals.
