£1.3m BFI FAN COVID-19 Resilience Fund announced

Exhibitors and festivals have faced immediate closure and cancellations, with many small and medium sized businesses at risk of permanent closure and making staff redundant. The BFI has repurposed the BFI Film Audience Network’s National Lottery activity funding, to offer critical relief to exhibitors across the whole of the UK. You can read the BFI’s full announcement here.

The ICO is the Film Hub Lead Organisation for the South East, and will be managing applications to the newly announced Resilience Fund in the region. Applications will be opening next week – subscribe to our Film Hub South East mailing list to find out when the fund opens.
