The BFI (British Film Institute) was founded in 1933 as a charity governed by a Royal Charter. Cinema For All is supported by the BFI as part of Film Forever and is a Strategic Lead Partner of the BFI Film Audience Network.

Film Forever is a five year strategic plan for 2012-2017 to support UK film. The plan is based around three priorities – education and audiences, support for the UK film industry and unlocking film heritage.
