Funding for Members

Information, opportunities, guidelines and application forms.

Develop your Film Audience

Perhaps you want to attract young audiences to your film festival, or make your regular cinema programme more accessible. If you want to develop an audience for British or international film but need some financial support, or training, this page tells you how to submit a proposal to us.

We run various schemes within FHW and across BFI FAN that can help you. Browse the strands below and make sure to read the guidelines and submission forms carefully for each one to make sure you meet the criteria.

To access funding from FHW you must become a member. It’s free to join – you can sign-up by filling out a form.

Film Hub Wales (FHW) celebrates cinema. We support organisations that screen film to a public audience, from film festivals, to societies and mixed arts centres.

This fund aims to bring the best British, independent and international film to audiences across Wales. It aims to support independent film exhibitors as they resume audience development programmes post Covid-19

Find out how we support films, screenings and filmmakers, that celebrate Wales.

We support film festivals running independent British and international film programmes through the Film Exhibition Fund (FEF). Find an overview of Welsh festivals below.

If you want to attend a meeting, course or event that would benefit your organisation and develop audiences but the costs are prohibitive, you can submit an application for support.

All projects will be assessed against the ability and potential to meet one or more of FHW’s core objectives.

Each year, BFI FAN support four new releases that deserve to be seen on the big screen.
