Who We Are and What We Do
As part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network and funded by BFI and Screen Scotland, we are one of eight Hubs set up across the UK to extend film choice, increase and broaden film audiences, and enhance opportunities for audiences to engage with and learn about film.
We support a network of like-minded film exhibitors – from film societies to multiplexes – to work together to better serve Scotland’s diverse population. We provide Hub members with a range of funding opportunities, screening programmes, training, networking events and audience research, helping Scotland’s exhibitors become truly inclusive, reaching as many new and existing audiences as possible.
We lead on cross-FAN member support and development, working closely on FAN’s year-round UK-wide programme of activity of training and events for the sector.
This Way Up is the annual conference for people working in UK film exhibition; a space to gather, connect, learn and be inspired. Delivered by BFI FAN, This Way Up brings the sector together to share new ideas, celebrate our work, and collectively imagine the future of cinema-going for audiences across the UK.
FAN Advice Sessions offer Hub Members FREE access to broad range of knowledge and experience within the cinema exhibition industry.
Distributor Slate Days
Distributor Slate Days is a major industry event for distributors and exhibitors. It takes place annually, building stronger links between distributors and exhibitors and showcasing a range of exciting upcoming theatrical releases.
