The BFI’s blockbuster season for 2018 is the UK’s greatest ever celebration of film and TV comedy – bringing the gift of laughter just when we need it most! From October to December the comedy geniuses of the big and small screen will be making us laugh at BFI Southbank and cinemas across the UK, online on BFI Player and with a wide range of UK partners.

The Comedy Genius season runs from October to December 2018.

If you are interested in getting involved and putting on a screening or event, you can submit your brief and apply for funding through the Film Hub Midlands website. You will also be able to find all supporting documents with more information on the project.

New Support Avenues – Launch Pad and Sustain

New for 2016-17, Cinema For All is excited to launch two new support avenues for community cinemas and film societies – Launch Pad and Sustain. 

Designed to support new groups through their test phase, Launch Pad provides intensive coaching, as well as bursaries to help you put on your first two test screenings in your community.

Aimed at existing groups that might be in need of some extra support, Sustain is designed to help you identify and improve on areas of your operation through coaching, programme support and access to a one-off bursary.

To find out more, and to apply, go to: http://cinemaforall.org.uk/about-cinema-for-all/projects/test-screening-support-bursaries-2016-17/

Do be sure to read the guidance notes/terms and conditions before applying. The deadline for both opportunities is 30 October.


Best of luck!
