BFI Film Fund

The BFI uses National Lottery funds to develop and support original UK filmmakers and films, and to increase the audiences who can enjoy them.

We seek to reflect the public in the films we support, the audiences who watch them, and the filmmakers, actors and crews who make them.

Our aim is to champion diverse, bold and distinctive films and increase the audiences for them across the UK. See a trailer of the films we’ve supported.
