Screening independent British and World film alongside Hollywood blockbusters and classic cinema retrospectives, Broadway is one of the UK’s leading independent cinemas attracting thousands of visitors each year to its four-screen cinema, Cafébar and meeting, workshop and office spaces.
Broadway’s wider role includes encouraging the development of new talent and supporting learning through programmes such as the BFI Film Academy, and innovation and enterprise for people working in the creative and digital industries with initiatives such Near Now, Broadway’s studio for arts, design and innovation, and the Near Now Fellowship, their artistic and professional development programme.
Broadway is also home to award-winning filmmakers such as Jeanie Finlay (Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, Seahorse: The Dad Who Gave Birth) and Wellington Studios (BAFTA Scotland award-winning Calibre, London to Brighton) who regularly receive international acclaim for their work.
Broadway is the home of the BFI’s Film Hub Midlands, a key driving force behind film culture in the Midlands that provides training and funding to ensure people in the region watch, make and show films and has also been awarded a BFI Screen Diversity Mark.
