Guides & Resources for Exhibitors

Film Hub South West, and our partners across the BFI Film Audience Network, create guides and resources to help in lots of different areas: from developing young audiences to hosting dementia friendly screenings.

We also share workshop and event resources in this section so that even if you didn’t attend the workshop you can still check out the key points.
