BFI evaluations

Reports commissioned to monitor the delivery and impact of the funding we provide.

As an organisation managing public funding and with a remit to provide leadership and support for the sector and its audiences, we are accountable for ensuring public funding works as hard as possible for the public and the industry.

To monitor the delivery and impact of the funding we provide, we primarily commission externally-conducted evaluation of programmes following a formal procurement process. This helps ensure the good governance of public funds. Completed evaluation reports are approved by internal quality assurance processes.


The BFI2022 strategy, initially a 5-year strategy extended by one year due to the disruption and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, ended on 31 March 2023.

Evaluations for programmes running under this strategy are published below and this page will be updated as end-of-term evaluations are completed.

Screen Culture 2033

Screen Culture 2033 is a 10-year corporate strategy for the BFI which came into effect on 1 April 2023.

It sets out how we will advance our knowledge, collections, programmes, leadership, and allocate National Lottery funding, to build a diverse UK screen culture that benefits all of society.

As part of Screen Culture 2033, the BFI National Lottery Strategy 2023-2033 and the first National Lottery Funding Plan 2023-2026 set out funding plans and programmes to deliver the greatest possible benefit to the public and to the sector.

We expect to publish the first evaluations from this period from August 2025 onwards.
