    We are now coming to the end of the BFI Film Forever strategy and are running a final round of the Equipment Fund. To encourage inclusivity we are including ‘MobileConnect’ in our last round which is a live-streaming solution that provides users with audio description and hearing support on their own smartphones.

  • Boost your audiences with free advertising for your screenings

    If you haven’t already had a chance, try out our Press Association Listings feature on the website. Simply log into your account and click on ‘Manage my screenings’ to get started. The automatic advertising of your screenings on printed and online ‘what’s on’ news sections is a great way of encouraging new audiences.
