New Release Titles

From 2018 until March 2023 the BFI Film Audience Network (FAN)  supported four new release films each year to help exhibitors across the UK engage with more diverse audiences and programme more titles that might be perceived as being ‘risky’ or ‘too challenging’. 

BFI FAN has previously supported a diverse line-up of films including: Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Shoplifters, the coming-of-age LGBT story We The Animals, Korean drama Burning from director Lee Chang-dong and political activism documentary Hail Satan? 

The scheme worked closely with FAN Young Consultants who worked with distributors to create bespoke marketing packs for venues looking to attract 18-25 year old audience members.
