Neighbourhood Cinema

BFI Neighbourhood Cinema supports people in launching and sustaining community cinemas, they run a dedicated website full of inspiration and Neighbourhood Cinema profiles. Anyone can make a profile for their cinema on the website.

They run an Equipment Fund scheme, which awards screening equipment to eligible community cinema groups. Alongside this, they also support touring cinemas ­– organisations that take films and the equipment to show them into community venues – through the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema Pilot Fund for Touring Cinema Initiatives.

Working closely with organisations such as Cinema For All and the Independent Cinema Office (ICO), their aim is to ensure that every person in the UK can access film screenings near them.
