How will the Film Audience Network affect my area?
The BFI and the members of the BFI Film Audience Network want to encourage everyone to enjoy a lifelong relationship with film. Our aims are to bring the full diversity of film to more people as well as a greater understanding of, and engagement with film across the UK (a key priority of the BFI, as set out in Film Forever, our five year plan for UK film). We want to put film at the centre of cultural life.
Film can inspire us, enrich our lives and expand our understanding of the world around us. In recognising the power and benefit of film, the BFI Film Audience Network also aims to make it easier for audiences to access film culture – to make it available on more platforms and accessible across the UK.
Organisations involved in the film exhibition sector will benefit from the BFI Film Audience Network as it will boost collaboration and the exchange of information, encourage joint programming and audience development projects, develop UK wide initiatives and programmes and allow organisations to draw upon the experience of Hub and network members.
How can I find out more about plans in my area?
We hope for you to get involved with this new exciting journey to spread the full richness of film culture across the UK.
At the moment we are in the start-up phase, but you can contact the Film Hub for your area via the email address given on the About the Film Hub Lead Organisations page and they will try to answer any questions you have at this stage.
In time there will be more information available online which will tell you about activities and opportunities to connect with the network and who to get in touch with.
