Membership

Film Hub South West membership is free and offers a range of benefits, including access to training, funding, special programmes and networking opportunities.  

We have over 140 members, a range of cinemas, film societies, film festivals, multi-arts venues and pop-up initiatives, and invite any constituted organisation that offers public, communal screenings to join.

Why join?

  • Funding – a range of financial support is available as well as bursaries for staff/volunteer development
  • Training and development – access to training courses and events; peer-to-peer mentoring and support
  • Networking – invitations to events, conferences and meetings hosted by the Hub and its partners both regionally and nationally
  • Collaboration – opportunities to work with other cinemas and organisations on joint programming and audience development projects, and regional and national initiatives
  • Advice and guidance – request one-to-one support about a range of topics including programming and audience development activity
  • Audience insight – access the latest research and market intelligence on audiences and film exhibition trends
  • Advocacy – the chance to be part of a stronger collective voice for film exhibition and audiences

Am I eligible?

If you are a constituted organisation who screens films to public audiences (or has plans to do so within 12 months of joining) you are eligible for free Film Hub membership.

Private individuals are not eligible for FAN membership in their own right, but are encouraged to sign-up to the Film Hub South West newsletter to keep in touch with Film Hub news and developments around the South West and UK.

Most of the financial support offered by the Hub is only available to members. However, membership does not mean you are automatically eligible for particular schemes and initiatives, and applicants should consult the criteria of individual calls for full details of who can apply.
