New Release Titles

Since summer 2018, BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) has been supporting 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’. Anyone can submit a film for consideration and we particularly welcome submissions from film distributors and exhibitors.

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? 

We are also working closely with FAN Young Consultants who have worked with distributors to create bespoke marketing packs for venues looking to attract 18-25 year old audience members.

Visit FAN Young Audiences for more information.

For information on how FAN can support your screening, please contact Timon Singh, Campaigns Manager, Film Hub South West at ti.s@watershed.co.uk
