Film Audience Network

The BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) was set up in 2012, using funds from the National Lottery, to support a stronger and more connected approach to growing audiences for British and international film on the big screen. 

For the five years of our strategic plan from 2017 we want to build on the early successes of FAN. We will refine and strengthen its unique role in growing film audiences in the UK and help it achieve more, in line with the overarching priorities of the organisation’s BFI2022 strategy. Our new strategy will boost the overall resources and decision-making capability available to FAN and as a result will ask more of its leadership.

We are now inviting applications from organisations that wish to become Film Hub Lead Organisations (FHLOs) within FAN for the BFI2022 strategy period of 2017 to 2022.

If you want to know more or get involved, please see the How to apply section below.
