As the lead body for film in the UK, the BFI maintains a number of creative, strategic and funding relationships with industry and key stakeholders investing in education and audiences, filmmaking and film heritage.

The Partnerships team supports and develops these relationships and leads on the distribution and management of Grant-in-Aid and Lottery funding to ensure that partners are fit for purpose and give value for money for and on behalf of the BFI.

We are always keen to discuss, explore and develop new UK and international partnerships to support and promote the future of film. Please contact us on
