The third round of the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema Equipment Fund is now open, working to help cover some of the costs associated with showing films in community venues. Community venues which have been running for 6 months or more and have set up a profile on the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema website are eligible to apply for equipment, chairs and black out blinds.
The venue must be able to demonstrate sufficient levels of existing activity with a British and specialised film programme to be eligible to apply for equipment such as screens, projectors, Blu-ray players, sound equipment, chairs and blackout blinds. The fun only supplies specified equipment and doesn’t currently offer cash grants for any other types of equipment or for equipment from other other supplier.
To find a full set of guidelines and how you can apply please visit the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema website.
