About us

We’re part of a UK wide network of eight hubs funded by the British Film Institute (BFI) which form the Film Audience Network (FAN), with Chapter appointed as the ‘Film Hub Lead Organisation’ (FHLO) in Wales.

Film Hub Wales (FHW) celebrates cinema. We support organisations that screen film, from film festivals, to societies and mixed arts centres. Working with over 315 Welsh exhibitors, we aim to bring the best British and international film to all audiences across Wales and the UK.

If you’re more into making, check out our filmmaker/distributor support sheet. We always want to hear about films made in Wales. We’re all about watching, so if you screen films to a public audience, you could benefit from our research, training courses, bursaries, funds, advice and more. Once you’ve joined as a member, you can even apply for support to develop your film audience.

We are also proud to lead the UK Inclusive Cinema strategy on behalf of BFI FAN.

Since 2013 we’ve supported over 250 audience development projects, reaching over 480,000 people. Take a look at some of the highlights to date across our Welsh network and beyond.
