Film Feels: Connected
July – August 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed us apart physically, but cinemas and their audiences are still finding ways to come together, through watch parties, exclusive previews, tweetalongs and VOD/venue partnerships.
Film Feels Connected is a season designed to spotlight innovation across BFI FAN, to promote your online activity during lockdown and to help cinemas, festivals and societies access support to try out new activity.
How to get involved
- Tell them about your own events so they can list them on filmfeels.co.uk – the audience-facing site where they’ll be promoting online activity across FAN and highlighting your events.
- Apply for funding up to £1,500 to help enhance your event, put toward marketing or speaker costs, or cover tech and hosting fees.
- Use the hashtag #filmfeels or #filmfeelsconnected to link to the season, or find other events taking place.
Major Programmes funding is available for costs up to £1,500 to help you try out new online activity.
Applications can be made to any time before 3 July 2020, decisions will be made in two rounds, in the middle of June, and at the beginning of July 2020.
Your activity can take place any time between June – August 2020.
