What is This Way Up?

This Way Up is the annual conference for people working in UK film exhibition; a space to gather, connect, learn and be inspired.

Every year, This Way Up welcomes film exhibitors from across the UK. It is a place to come together to consider the key issues that affect our sector, and to develop creative solutions. As we sit on the cusp of a new 10-year BFI National Lottery Funding Strategy (April 2023 – March 2033), this is a vital time for us to look towards the future.

Delivered by BFI FAN, This Way Up brings the sector together to share new ideas, celebrate our work, and collectively imagine the future of cinema-going for audiences across the UK.
