British Film Institute (BFI) - Distribution Fund

We aim to do this in two key ways:

The Distribution Fund has an annual budget of £4 million.

The Fund will work with and be complementary to other BFI funding initiatives such as the Audience Fund and the 5-19 Education Scheme and will contribute to our strategic priority of expanding education and learning opportunities and boosting audience choice across the UK. 

There are four distribution funding strands, each specifically designed to address different types of films, release strategies and the associated challenges and opportunities in the marketplace.
