Film Exhibitor Fund

Currently closed for applications.


Ffilm Cymru wants all kinds of people in all kinds of places across Wales to be able to see independent films together. We support independent film exhibitors across Wales to give audiences exciting and inspiring cinematic experiences.

We provide funding and support to independent cinemas, film festivals and community providers so that they can screen films in a wide range of settings throughout the nation.

Since 2006 this support has been awarded to organisations, who, like us, are passionate about improving access to film for audiences across Wales, as well as testing and innovating to improve their offer.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a unique set of challenges for exhibitors. In order to ensure this work can continue, our Film Exhibitor Fund has been designed to support the immediate needs of film exhibitors through the remainder of the year as we begin to see audiences returning to the big screen.

Who can apply?

Independent cinemas and arts centres, film festivals and societies, pop-up cinema events, and community providers of film screenings.

How much can I apply for?

Up to 75% of the overall total cost, to a maximum of £20,000.
